What is a website hosting migration service?
Website hosting migration is a very common service, many customers are looking for a server with a more agile response, with more adequate support, with greater storage capacity or with lower monthly values to keep the website up. A common moment for this change to occur is during the layout redesign, or when switching to a more current platform, which is more personalized or with more tools. In general terms, site migration means taking all the site’s code that is loaded on a remote server, saving it and passing it on to be loaded on a new server.
MW ONLINE specializes in this migration and has its own hosting servers, with several configuration options, so you can choose the ideal one for your moment, which results in better support and follow-up. In the plans specialized in WordPress, we even carry out all the necessary weekly updates and automatic monitoring throughout the duration of the contract.
Anyone who has a website hosted by foreign companies knows how complicated it is to get in touch, receive the necessary information and answers to make changes or recover the website when there is some kind of problem. With MW Online, the hosting service is proprietary and integrated with the support, so there is no such time between contact and the necessary answers, thus being agile to find solutions, make updates and include news.
Can incorrect information be loaded during migration?
MW ONLINE has a qualified team to assist in extracting internal information from your current website, importing complete content, organizing information and correcting potential broken links.

How long does it take on average to migrate my current website to MW Online hosting?
In general, for sites programmed on the WordPress platform, it is possible to carry out the migration in less than 24 hours. Time is measured against the amount of data on your current website, i.e. the storage space the files occupy on the hosting.
If you have your website created on a platform other than WordPress, it is also possible to migrate hosting quickly and safely. However, depending on your site’s settings, it may take a little extra time to successfully make the change.
Also, it’s important to point out that your site won’t go offline during the migration, nor will you lose access to your email. All integration is done independently, that is, only when the new site is ready, the old one will be taken down.
If you have already canceled the old hosting, is it possible to migrate?
