If your website is hosted somewhere else we will usually move your website to our hosting platform first thing. If we are rebuilding your website this will happen in the beginning of the process to ensure we have the necessary access. We will then build your new website on a development URL that only you will have access to. If we are just taking over the management of your website we will move it to our host and make sure the necessary security and backup protocols are setup. It is very rare that we will leave your website on your host, but there are times when this is the best option, one of which is if you are part of a franchise. Our hosting solution and support has many additional benefits that just hosting. Please ask your Web Presence Consultant if you have any additional questions about this.
