If Migrating your hosting from old host:


NOTE


  • QServers can only migrate hosting accounts that are active and are using the CPanel control panel, else you will have to manually migrate your hosting account yourself. CPanel migrations are free! If your current host is using a different control panel, please email support@qservers.net for a custom migration which will come at some additional costs.
  • You can not transfer a domain name that has expired, is less than 60 days old, that is locked or has no EPP code. You must also have access to the email address listed as the administrative contact on the whois lookup output/record for the domain.
  • A domain name transfer takes 5 working days (excluding weekends)
