What Makes
RoseHosting's Migration Process Unique?

The key is in our team of website migration experts.

Clear Communication

Our migration team will communicate with you to create a plan for which services and data should be migrated. We won't migrate any services or data that you do not want moved over. We intend to keep our plan and communication clear and upfront to you.

Quick Migration

Once we have the information needed in order to proceed with the migration, our migration team will get started immediately with moving your websites, databases, data and more over from your existing hosting provider.

The process only takes as long as the amount of data and the complexity of the server setup.

Invisible to your visitors

We perform the migration behind the scenes - we put in our best efforts to leave your existing sites, services, and more online (whenever possible) so that your visitors continue to be able to use your website or services.

Once the migration is complete, you/we can switch the DNS records and have your migration completed without your visitors even noticing.

Our Migration Procedure in 4 Steps

We keep the migration process simple & straightforward.

1. Migration Request
2. Migration In Progress
3. Migration Verification
4. Migration Completed
Migration Types

1. Migration Request

When you sign up for RoseHosting, you receive a brand new server with a fresh operating system of your choice. You could ask us to install any software you like on it, or you could also ask us to move your content from anywhere else on the Internet, as long as it is accessible by us.

To request a migration to be done by us, all you need to do is to submit a support ticket in our Client Area. We'll need to have access to the server where your websites and content are currently hosted.

After you provide us with access and a list of services that you need migrated over from your existing provider, we'll get to work immediately on moving everything you requested.

However, if you have constantly changing data that can't exist in two places due to new data always being written, then we recommend shutting off your services on your old server before the migration is initiated. This will ensure that no further changes are made on the old server that wouldn't be present on the new server once the migration is completed.

2. Migrating Your Services

Once we have the credentials to log into the old server, we'll get to work right away on moving your services.

This includes moving almost anything you can think of - we'll move any number of databases that you have, including MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and other database servers as well.

We'll also move almost any software stack that you have - whether it's WordPress, Magento, PrestaShop, Odoo, ERPNext, or even a plain website serving static files using a web server like Apache or Nginx, we migrate all  of these website types.

Additionally, we can migrate any data that you might have, such as images and documents from your websites. For example, if you have a media library for WordPress, we'll move that as a part of your WordPress migration.

We can also migrate your accounts from control panels such as WHM/cPanel or DirectAdmin - this includes websites, emails, and more. 

3. Migration Verification

Once we make your websites, services, databases and more exist on your new server exactly as they were on the old server, we'll set up a unique link that will let you preview your website and content as if you had already moved your domain name and DNS records over to your new server. 

This will let you see the result of the migration and verify if everything looks as it should to our admin team. If something is not right or needs further adjustment, we'll help with that and make sure that the migration is done to the standards that you require.

We won't consider a migration as completed until you sign off that the migration looks successful and is considered completed. Even then we recommend thoroughly ensuring that all aspects of your services work as you expect them to. 

4. Migration Completion

Once the migration is finished and you have verified your content looks the way you expect it to on your new server, all you'll need to do is adjust your DNS records to point to your new server's IP address.

As the change propagates throughout the Internet, your visitors will gradually start to use your new server instead of your old one, all without them noticing.

A seamless transfer with no downtime unfortunately can't be done for use cases/services that require data to be continuously written or updated on the server, as changes to the storage would mean the migration will have missing data if the service continues to run while the migration takes place.

Now that the services have been migrated and your users are now using the new server, we recommend keeping the old server for a few days extra just in case the migration needs something added to it, such as a plugin, module or something similar. We'll help you add whatever is missing from the server if you find something is not transferred over.

    I have tested more than 20 hosting services in the past at WHSR - RoseHosting is easily one of the top 3 in term of server quality by far.

    RoseHosting has provided excellent VPS hosting services since the first day that I switched to their platform. My previous host was plagued with frequent hardware failures, server downtime, poor bandwidth and the inability to create backups correctly. RoseHosting has never once suffered from any of those problems.

    I love RoseHosting so much, I kind of hate leaving a review. They are like a secret gem! Before them I was using a well known company and struggling. Rose Hosting basically held my hand through all of my VPS Hosting so I could concentrate on what I’m good at, web design.

    It's not the shopping that brings me back, it's the service afterwards. When ever I have questions, or something is wrong with my server, you guys/gals are on it quickly and professionally.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of services can be migrated?

We'll migrate just about any stack you can think of. Whether it's a web server, database server, email server, a combination of several services, docker containers, etc. You name it, we'll do everything we can to migrate those services onto your server.

Do you migrate data as well?

Yes - we can migrate data, files, documents, and more from your old provider. The only limit would be the available storage - we can't migrate files and documents if there is not enough room with your hosting plan in order to store them all. In that case, you would need to upgrade to a higher hosting plan or tell us which files can be omitted in order for the transfer to fit in your server plan.

How long does a migration typically take?

The length of a migration process really can vary a lot from user to user. Some users might have only a few megabytes worth of static content to migrate, in which case it would take less than an hour to complete. In other cases, there are users with several complex service setups together with database servers and external files. In such a case, the procedure could take more than a day to be completed properly.

In any case, we do everything that we can to make sure the migration process takes as little time as possible in order to save you time and get your business up and running with RoseHosting.

Does RoseHosting do outbound migrations?

No, we do not migrate services or data outbound to other hosting providers. We do inbound migrations from other hosting providers.

What is the cost of performing a migration?

It costs absolutely nothing for you to request and perform a migration with our migration team. We'll move an unlimited number of your websites, databases, data and more onto your server hosted with us, all for free.
