Approaches to website migration
Migrations come in all shapes and sizes. At Nexcess, we provide premium-quality lift and shift migrations. But, we are happy to help with refactoring and replatforming.
AutomatedMost common among cheap hosting providers
Migration in its most basic form. A computer program copies and pastes your content, but may damage settings and file systems.
Lift and shift
Also known as “re-hosting,” a lift and shift migration transfers your current site data without any changes. Same URLs, no code updates.
Also known as “lift, tinker and shift,” replatforming upgrades your application without changing your architecture
Refactoring includes significant code and application updates. It is used when a website has grown beyond its backend.
