How Hyve Can Help

Hyve’s expertise is backed by hundreds of successful migrations that we have completed for businesses of all sizes. We can carry out migrations around the clock, ensuring minimal disruption to websites and applications. 

  • Assisted migration – where we oversee a simple migration process and help with any issues.
  • Full migration – we manage large-scale migrations and provide a full migration strategy.

Here is an outline of a basic website migration process from start to finish:

  1. Deploy the server(s) based on the customers’ requirements.
  2. Install required applications/components/modules to the server(s).
  3. Gain access to source server(s) to copy the current web site files and import the database(s) to the Hyve server(s).
  4. If no access to source servers, then get the backup of current website files and database dump from customer and copy them to Hyve server(s).
  5. Ensure that the copied site works from Hyve server(s). Ask the customer to test all the functionalities of the sites from Hyve server(s).
  6. Put the site into maintenance mode and do the final migration of the web files and database(s) to the Hyve server(s). Change the database configuration in source server(s) to the Hyve server(s) (This will eliminate any data loss during the DNS propagation).
  7. Change the DNS record to the Hyve server IP address.
  8. Bring the site up from the Hyve server(s).
  9. Migration Completed.

Our support team is available 24/7/365 and we can migrate your data whenever your site has the lowest volume of traffic.

We put a full migration strategy in place that is staged to ensure that the live sites and applications have priority, and make sure the migration process runs smoothly. In the case of a migration error, our roll-back capabilities would ensure that the business would be able to return to a point pre-error.
