What Are Migrations?

A website migration involves moving all or part of your website. This may be the result of an upgrade/downgrade or switching hosts. Nexcess offers free site migrations with all hosting solutions.

Once we have your account information, we will begin the process of switching hosts and moving your site.

Please note that migrations can take up to a week depending on complexity. Call our sales team for an estimate.

How a Website Migration Works

To start the migration process, you will need to:

  1. Open a support ticket.
  2. Provide your current host account information.
    • SSH access — preferred and will be the fastest
    • FTP
    • Hosting Control Panel
  3. Our migration specialists will schedule a time to begin the data transfer of your website.
  4. Your website will be set up on a temporary domain for you and your team to test.
  5. Schedule a time to point your domain name at your Nexcess service and go live.


Our migration service is 100% free and managed by a team of dedicated experts.


Our migration experts waste no time helping you to transfer your site and get online.
