Fast migrations

The majority of our migrations are completed within a few hours of the request being received. We take great pride in providing fast migrations. However, several factors, such as the current host's network speed, the number of sites being migrated, and migration complexity can all influence the migration speed. Our Migrations team will keep you informed of your migration's progress.

The more complete the migration form, the faster the turnaround time! Filling out the Migration Form may seem daunting, but usually this information is easily accessible. Most hosting providers have a central page that lists all of the information about the hosting account.

Another method you can use to expedite your migration is to obtain a cPanel-based backup of your hosting account from your old host, and use FTP or the cPanel File Manager to upload the backup to your account at A2 Hosting. If you would like to take advantage of this, please open a support ticket and provide the backup filename with the full path to the directory where you have uploaded it. Our migration team will begin the migration as soon as possible. This method ensures the fastest possible migration, and is highly recommended by A2 Hosting's customer support team.
