Changing Web Hosting Providers

Whether you're unhappy with your current hosting provider or looking for a better deal and better support, we can help you easily and safely move all of your data over to our servers. Our transfers are done with minimal downtime (less than 10 minutes) and they're done for free!

Evolve Web Hosting provides free transfers within 30 days of signing up for a new account.

If you have not signed up for a web hosting plan yet, you may do so through our secure Online Hosting Order Form

After you place your order, you will need to open a support ticket to our Migrations department and we will need the following information from you:

  • cPanel, DirectAdmin or Plesk URL, UN (User Name) and PW (Password) from the location you are moving from
  • Time and Date (Time Zone included) you would like us to backup and move your account
  • An alternate email (not associated with your domain) for communication during this process

What Happens Next

Once we have successfully backed up your account and moved it to our servers, your Nameservers will need to be updated so that your site can load from our servers and you can get your other account cancelled. Do Not cancel your current web hosting plan until we have confirmed that all of your data has been successfully moved and it is loading from our server.

If we are your domain registrar, we will take care of this update for you.

If your domain(s) are registered somewhere else, you will need to use the ns1 and ns2 nameservers provided in your welcome email to login to that account to make the update.

Your domain has now started propagating and can finish within hours although there are times where this can take up to 48 hours. We use this site to monitor the status: https://whatsmydns.net
