Project Description

We're a web agency based in the UK with several hundred websites spread across several server platforms and hosting providers.

This project is the transfer of 10 .NET websites with MSSQL databases from their current hosting provider to a Rackspace Cloud Sites account.

Some of the websites are running on the DOTNETNUKE CMS. The rest are bespoke built.

We would take care of contacting clients and arranging the domain name re-pointing, under your instruction.

You would be given access to both hosting accounts and would take care of setting up the Rackspace hosting accounts, migrating the websites and testing. We would of course provide you with an introduction to our Rackspace hosting environment to ensure you understood how everything worked (it's very simple).

Once this project is complete we're looking to build an ongoing relationship with a hosting expert. This would involve the following:

1. A set number of hours per month to be used to perform general server maintenance and do other similar transfers. We also have websites running on our bespoke build PHP CMS and a collection of Linux servers plus a large number running on a Java based CMS and an IIS/Tomcat server setup.

2. Monitoring of backups on our various hosting platforms in collaboration with out in-house team

3. Being available "on call" in the event of a server emergency. We're open to suggestions on how this could be achieved in terms of contact and billing
