Dedicated/Cloud Server Migrations
NameShark will migrate your entire server including all email, databases, websites, applications, and anything inside your existing server. You must have full root or Administrator level access with your old server utilizing a modern administration control panel such as cPanel, Plesk, or DirectAdmin and are migrating to a like NameShark service with the same control panel. This is applicable for dedicated servers, and cloud/vps servers.
In cases where you do not have root or Administrator access, we can still migrate your data provided account-level backups have been made at your current host through the administrative control panel. Our staff can help you import those at no additional cost.
Limitations: If you are not utilizing an administrative control panel such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin, or moving customized data and applications – NameShark will assist in your migration for up to 2 hours at no cost for those who have a Managed Service. For those purchasing self managed plans, custom migration assistance is still available at our customary hourly rates of $95 per system admin hour.
NameShark will make a best effort to process all migrations within 1 business day – however due to the limitations of your previous host or server for stability, performance and capacity additional time may be required to complete the migrations.
