2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

Our Service is designed to provide migration of the following eligible website to a new or different Go Daddy web hosting account:  one single website, either WordPress or static HTML, from one (1) single source web hosting server/provider, no more than one hosted domain name, no more than one database, no more than five gigabytes of conent.

 OUR RESPONSIBILITES

  • Request and obtain your hosting FTP username and password
  • Access your current hosting account, perform a copy and/or backup process of your website, and transfer your content to the new or different Go Daddy hosting account
  • Set-up website directories, files and content, reconfigure the website application, and re-connect the database (if applicable)
  • Verify your content exists in the new or different Go Daddy hosting account
  • Provide you with instructions to test, verify and approve the operating functionality of your migrated website
  • Schedule and perform the final source-to-destination server transition, referred to as the 'go-live' event

 YOUR RESPONSIBILITES

  • Promptly provide your hosting FTP username and password
  • Promptly and thoroughly test each and every function of your migrated services
  • Promptly notify us of your decision when we provide you with the options for us to perform the 'go-live' event
  • Do not make changes and/or revisions to your website during the entire migration, with the exception of any database-driven updates which can be synchronized to the new server if required/applicable prior to DNS switch
  • You represent and warrant that you have the right to provide the FTP credentials and to authorize the transfer of the website from your current hosting provider to Go Daddy, or from one Go Daddy account to a different Go Daddy account

TESTING PROCESS AND 'GO-LIVE' EVENT

When we complete our initial migration and configuration of your website, we will provide you with step-by-step instructions to begin your testing. Your testing should commence no later than 24 hours from the time we provide you the testing instructions, in order to avoid unnecessary delays and/or compromise to the migration project schedule.

You must promptly and thoroughly test every function of your migrated services, and report any and all errors to us that you may discover during testing. When reporting errors, include instructions to demonstrate how the error can be reproduced. Visual examples (such as screen shots) will help expedite our troubleshooting and error resolution tasks. If we are required to resolve any errors, additional time and service fees may apply.

IMPORTANT: Should you fail in any way to promptly and thoroughly complete your migration testing responsibilities, we cannot promise to complete the migration in a timely manner. Any testing and/or error reporting delays caused by you may require us to perform a complete re-migration, which will result in additional fees you must pay us.

When your testing is complete and any/all reported errors have been verified by you to be resolved, we will post clear instructions and options for us to perform the 'go-live' event. The go-live event may include the synchronization of your database, as applicable. If we are required to sync your database, we will place a temporary 'maintenance page' on your live website domain during the data sync to temporarily suspend ‘live’ services and reduce risk of data loss.

The final step of the go-live process is to point DNS for your website to the new destination server, after which DNS propagation must occur to complete the migration. We cannot estimate or control DNS propagation time, so we suggest you consider this variable in advance of the go-live event.

You acknowledge and agree that any and all materials downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Services is done at your own discretion and risk and you will be solely responsible for any and all damages to your computer system or other device or loss of data resulting therefrom.
