Hosting Transfer

The Hosting Transfer service is available as an opt-in addon to a Hosting plan purchase and is prescribed to assist with transferring hosted email and websites from another provider to iTech Matters. You may only apply and process one Hosting Transfer per unique Hosting account/package. If you wish to transfer additional websites you must process a new Hosting Transfer with a new Hosting package included.

We do not make any guarantees in transferring email and web hosting regarding:

  • Success of transfer. We may only be able to migrate a portion of your account, other elements may require your partial or complete management;
  • Speed of transfer. We will endeavour to complete the migration within 48 business hours, however there may be instances where completion of the migration may extend well beyond this time frame;
  • Compatibility. It is important to note that whilst we will make every effort to ensure that there is maximum email and web hosting compatibility from the old host to iTech Matters, due to software complexity it is not always possible to ensure 100% compatibility of applicable software with the new server. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have purchased a web hosting plan specified to support your email and website as well as performing a complete test of your services post transfer; or
  • Completion. It is your responsibility to ensure that all necessary files and settings have been migrated to completion.

We endeavour to ensure that all of the above items and any other factors relating to a web hosting transfer are done to maximum effect and have installed a solid process and policy to govern the management of a migration however we shall not be held liable for any failure, damaged or lost data to iTech Matters. It is your sole responsibility to maintain a full back up of your data and files.
