Catstycam

A small, independent, family run outdoor clothing shop in Glenridding near Penrith, trading in the outdoors since 1985

Challenge

The challenge was to migrate the current Catstycam site from one hosting platform to another. Migrating websites from one server to another always has complexities but as it involved the hosting of a Magento ecommerce site, greater difficulty was anticipated as it has a large file base to transfer.

Our Solution

In order to migrate the site from the previous development company we took the copy of the Magento site that they provided and set it up on a development server, making changes to the database to ensure that the site used the development link rather than that of the live site. Once this was achieved and we had run tests to ensure that the migration had been successful we then placed test transactions (using SagePay) to ensure that there were no issues. Despite a rocky transitional period the site is now live.

"Freshspace have been hosting our website for years now. Whenever anything odd happens they are on it straight away and I have no grumbles at all. Cheers Darren & Eilidh."
