Griotsites is committed to making it easy to transfer your Web Property to your new hosting account. We can transfer website files, databases, scripts, and one free domain registration transfer. If you have additional domain registrations you would like to transfer to, visit here.

We just love to use analogies, so here is one that explains what happens during a Web Property transfer. Think of moving into a new house. Your new house can look like the old house as long as you are setting up your place using the same furniture, colors, etc.  With that example in mind, think about relocating your site property in its entirety from the “house” or web space you are currently occupying to our Griotcity. Once we relocate your Web Property over to us, we will have to go in, review each page and clean up all contents that have shifted during the move.

How Can I Transfer My Domain to You?

We can move your content and databases for one Web Property or cPanel/Plesk Panel over from another host. Please contact us for a quote on moving your website contents over to our server.

Web Properties We Cannot Transfer

While Griotsites has a well trained and very experienced Migrations team, some site properties cannot be moved due to technical limitations. Our current list of sites/hosts which we cannot transfer from are as follows:

Website Tonight
Google Sites
Microsoft Office Live Small Business/Office 365

We also cannot transfer from hosts that do not allow access to your website files (typically by FTP) and/or databases and/or the data in those databases. Without access, we cannot copy and transfer your site.

1&1 is transferable, but no cPanel and no full backup. May have some issues in transferring mail.
A Small Orange is transferable, has cPanel and full backup. Full email transfer.
Blogger / Blogspot, no cPanel and partial backup. Not all content is transferable, including email.
BlueHost is transferable, has cPanel and full backup. Full email transfer.
• Cloud Access,
no cPanel and partial backup. Not all content is transferable including email.
DreamHost, no cPanel and no backup. Not all email content is transferable.

This list is a bit longer than what is listed. Please contact us for a complete list of Web Properties that we cannot transfer or have limitations on the transfer.

Types of Transfers

There are four types of transfers that can occur when migrating your current hosting plan over to a new hosting plan:

Inter-Server Transfers
An Inter-server transfer is a transfer between two physical servers. A few examples of this are moving from an old hosting account to a new account at Griotsites.

Intra-Server Transfers
An intra-server transfer is a transfer between accounts on the same server. This includes upgrades such as Silver Court and Gold Road packages. These are "in-place" upgrades in which no files are moved and the limits of your account are simply raised

Manual Transfers
Manual transfers include most things that are not cPanel to cPanel transfers. Additionally, this includes work such as splitting addon domains into cPanel accounts. A few examples are: transferring from a host without cPanel, moving addon domains into new cPanel sub-accounts, moving addon domain to addon domain, moving cPanel account to addon domain, moving addon domain to cPanel account and anything that cannot be packaged and then restored with no additional work.

Lateral Transfers
A lateral transfer is when content is moved from one package to a different package of the same type, on a different server, using the same domain name for both. This type of move is not supported by our Migrations department and will need to be done manually by the account owner.
