Transfers

 

Our Transfers Team will make every effort to help you move your website to our hosting platform. Transfers are provided as a courtesy service for up to 5 cPanel accounts (additional migrations are available at our standard hourly admin rate). We must be able to obtain a FULL cPanel backup from your current host and the compressed account size shall not exceed 1 GB.

We do not make any guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to migrate some or all account data. In some cases we may not be able to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host. The free transfer service is available for thirty (30) days from your sign up date.

Transfers outside of the thirty (30) day period will incur a charge; please contact a member of our team to receive a price quote. In no event shall Techsolve Hub be held liable for any lost or missing data or files resulting from a transfer to or from Techsolve Hub. You are solely responsible for backing up your data in all circumstances.
