Thank you for your question south!

We do have a website transfer service that we offer. Transferring websites is done on a First come First serve basis and will need to be evaluated by our Systems support whether we can move the site or not. WordPress should not be a problem; however, it can depend on the server it was installed on.

Website transfers are considered on a case-by-case basis depending on the size of your site, complexity of programming, and the platform/OS of your previous host. We will need the following information pertaining to your previous host in order to review your site and determine whether we will be able to move it for you, and as well as any costs involved.

*Please note that website transfers are generally handled by our overnight staff during off peak hours.

Please submit the following information for each site that you wish to have moved To our tech support at <strong></strong>:

- FTP host name or IP
- Control panel login URL
- FTP and Control Panel user name(s)
- FTP and Control Panel password(s)

- Your InMotion Hosting username
- Verification of either your AMP password or the last four digits of your credit card

Please note that while we take care to ensure that your site will be as fully operational as possible on our servers, we are unable to provide technical support for programming matters or in-depth configuration and dependencies of your site, or other issues that are not directly server-related. For websites over 5G in size, sufficient SSH access must be provided to your old server. Your site transfer may be subject to additional terms, such as pricing, time frame, and scope of configuration.

While we do try to complete all site move request within 24hrs, unfortunately due to the amount of move requests we receive each day there can be a 1-4 day time frame for completion. Please keep this time frame in mind when submitting your site transfer request.

Best Regards,
James R
