Transfering To Hostafrica
We'll make this process as easy as possible for you.
We'll assist you in the following:
Transferring your current website's content (and email settings: cPanel transfers only) from your old host to us. (Migrations operate M-F 8AM-4:30PM)
Domain transferal assistance: Fees may apply - please refer to our domain registrations page.
1 Month free hosting, so you can settle in.
Please send an email to [email protected] after your order / transfer, so we can arrange your 1 month free hosting. Note: The "one month free" applies to your next invoice - you will need to pay for your current invoice / initial hosting period with us.
You will have a period of 7 days from your initial signup/order to request that we move content from your previous host.
Moving to us from a host that uses cpanel
We will transfer all the website's content, settings, emails and databases free of charge.
Moving to us from a host that does not use cpanel
Please contact us to arrange your account migration.
Please note: that you will need to setup email addresses again on your cpanel with us as we can not get passwords for these email addresses from the old server with your previous host. Nor can we transfer stored mail on the old hosts server. If you have setup your mails as IMAP, you will need to change this to POP3. To avoid loosing any email content, download your mails to your email client before your account is transferred.
Please refer to our domain registration page to get a list of transferal fees, many domains are free to transfer, .com and .net include a free one year extension on the domain registration (from date of transfer) when they are transferred to us.
