How do I Switch to Managed WordPress Hosting from Existing Shared Hosting Plan?

Existing Windows Shared Hosting Customers


We offer Windows Shared Hosting plans on IIS web server whereas WordPress Hosting plans are setup on cPanel (with LiteSpeed Web Server) based server. Hence, direct switch over between these two plans is not possible. However, you can surely place new order for Managed WordPress Hosting plan and migrate your WordPress websites.

Once you migrate, browse your WordPress website through temporary URL, when you find everything is working fine, you can change nameservers to WordPress Hosting server. Additionally we provide PHP 5.6.25 in Windows Shared Hosting and support all major PHP 5.X versions (PHP 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6) in WordPress Hosting. If required, you can easily switch between these PHP versions through cPanel.

Existing Linux Shared Hosting Customers


Linux Shared Hosting customers can easily switch to Managed WordPress Hosting. Just submit the ticket from your client area to change the hosting. Upon your request, we will generate a  differential invoice. Once you make the payment, your existing WordPress websites will be covered under WordPress Managed Services. To install new WordPress setup, you can contact us our support team.
