It's really easy to move to GeekNetics, let us explain how.

It's as easy as 1,2,3

One oof the most challenging things about moving to a new hosting company is moving your web site. We want to take that pain away and make it as easy for you as possible when moving to GeekNetics. We offer a free website transfer service to all of our customers who have an existing website with another hosting provider at no charge.

Step 1 - Sign up

Sign up for one of our great value for money hosting plans from our Web Hosting Plans.

Once you receive your account activation email you'll have all of the details you need to access your new account. You should keep hold of this email for future use.

Don't worry though, we won't start moving your website yet - nothing will go offline.

Step 2 - Get ready to transfer

Once your account has been activated when you're ready to transfer your website, simply submit a support ticket to our Website Migration team. Complete all of the fields as appropriate together with any other relevant information which we may need, such as your existing cPanel username, password and login url.

Our engineers will receive the request. They'll take a look at your existing website and check they have all of the information that they need to make the transfer and ensure that there will be no issues in making the transfer. If everything is OK, they'll begin the process of transferring your website. If not they'll let you know and any proposed remedial actions.

Our engineers will notify you before they begin the transfer process, once they begin it could take upto 48 hours to complete. It depends on where it is transferring from and how much information there is to transfer. They will keep you advised of the process.

Step 3 - Test everything

Once your website has been moved the migration engineers will ask you to test your new website to ensure that everything is working as you would expect it to.

We'll have a quick run through to ensure that your email accounts are set up OK. If everything is OK then we'll let you know that you can go ahead and change your websites nameservers or DNS records, so that it points to our servers.

Step 4 - Cancel your old account

Once everything is moved over and you're happy it's up and running perfectly, you can cancel your old account with confidence. You moved your website without any worry - welcome to GeekNetics.
