SinoHosting offers the possibility for its clients to move their account to a location at a different location. This is usually needed due to change of target users location, or in order to improve access to current users. Clients who find that their users do not have an optimal access to their website can request to change to a different location.
This service is available four our standard shared hosting plans (international); you can move your website from/to Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, the USA (California or Texas), the United Kingdom or the Netherlands. You can also move from an international location to a China server (after you have obtained the ICP license), or from China to an international location.
SinoHosting does not charge for this service. As long as you keep the same package, the migration is free and is usually complete within 24 hours. As our servers configuration are mostly the same across all locations (cPanel), there is no expected problem that the migration could cause. If your site requires however a special version of PHP, Mysql or any other requirement, please inform us in advance in order to select the most appropriate server at the new location, or activate the required feature at the new server.
For clients with their domain names registered through SinoHosting, there is nothing they need to do at their end, everything is handled by SinoHosting technicians. If your domain is registered elsewhere or you manage your DNS through a third party, you will need to update your nameservers to the new values, which we will provide, after the migration is complete.
