Migration Preview

To ensure everything is running well, we set up your website(s) under the subdomain www1 and send you all information, including new logins for the new server(s).

With the www1 subdomain, you can browse your Magento 2 store to check if everything is working as expected. Once everything works well, we’ll schedule an appointment for the final Magento 2 data migration.

Final Migration

Ensure you don’t lose any data or custom code during the final migration. We set your old website in maintenance mode, exported the database again, and recopy all dynamic files like the media directory.

We can usually complete the move for simple sites within one business day. Complex migrations, like websites with many domains, may take 2-3 business days to complete.

Yes, very little. The average downtime during the final migration is about 5 to 15 minutes. Downtime depends on the database size for Magento 1.x and Magento 2.x. The bigger the database, the longer it takes to migrate data and copy and import. For a smaller database, you can expect minimal downtime.

First, we perform a test migration and use a detailed checklist to assess its completeness. We will send the test migration to your team or the Magento developer. The initial migration can be reviewed and checked if everything works on the new server. If you are satisfied with the test migration, we will schedule an appointment for the final migration.

Amazon Route 53 is designed for the highest performance, reliability, and security.

The DNS is essential for high availability and needs to be protected against DDoS attacks. You can set up routing policies to automate responses in case of failures. For example, if you want to redirect traffic to other Availability Zones and Regions.

You get the flexibility to set traffic policies based on multiple criteria, such as geographic location, failover, endpoint health, and latency. You can route your end users to AWS regions with low latency.

Amazon Route 53 can handle large volume queries without interrupting the end-user experience. It intelligently routes traffic based on automated health checks and away from failing servers.

If one server experiences a crash, Amazon Route 53 can redirect users to a healthy resource while the problem is being fixed.

It is possible, of course. However, we recommend using a service like Amazon Route 53. It is a highly scalable Domain Name System (DNS) that connects user requests to internet applications running on AWS infrastructure.

You can transfer management of existing domains or register new domain names to AWS Route 53. When a user enters the domain name, Route 53 helps to connect the user to the website. The DNS translates the domain names into numeric IP addresses that computers use to connect.

Customize the routing policies to improve the availability of the Magento 2 website. It includes simple routing, geolocation routing, latency-based routing, weighted routing, failover routing, etc.

Yes, your SSL certificate will be transferred, too. It ensures that your data is safe during data transmission from the customer’s browser and your Magento shop. It assists in maintaining the ranking of your site after migration.

We also provide free SSL certificates to secure the connection between the client and your website. You can add it to single or multiple domains.

The SSL encryption validates your Magento store on the internet and reduces the risk of phishing. It shows customers that your site is trustworthy and helps secure customer payments.

The PCI (Payment Cards Industry) requires at least 128-bit encryption on any payment data being transmitted. If your store is taking customer payments, an SSL certificate is required.
