350 hosting clients need to be migrated. Now the company that I'm doing consulting for is not very easy. They have their own DC and they are available during 9-5 which makes it a pain. On top of it, they want to keep control of the DNS and make sure that our info is perfectly duplicated before they give up power to the DNS. The shared hosting packages that we are migration are 250 client seating on Open BSD server with no control panel which will be migrated to Cpanel centos server and then 100 windows clients with no control panel, migrated to a new windows server with Plesk. As you see it's definitely a mess and the company that I'm doing consulting for definitely has high expectation for me, which indirectly has high expectation from you. It requires great experience in migration and flexibility. I already dealt with 2 suppliers that made me look back, and put me at my last chance. So I’m asking for only suppliers who have the skills and experience to do that, and flexibility to work with few the handicaps that we have here. If your philosophy is “we will move it, and then fix any issue that comes up” this contract is not for you. It’s only 350 clients and needs to be done perfectly. I will personally call every client myself to have the preview link tested, that how picky we are getting here. I’m a very nice person and easy to work with and I never give bad feedback. This contract will be an exception because if do not have the experience and patience to accomplish it in a healthy manner, and I will loose the contract because of that, not only I will no have money to pay you but I will also add a bad feedback. So please think twice before you are willing to take this contract.
P.S. I’m really not trying to make someone’s life miserable, I just want to make sure that I’m working with someone who knows what he is doing and can guarantee his work. Also we are still on Elance, so it’s not an excuse to completely overcharge me, lol
