Hosting and Migration
Sunco Tanning tanning first came to MVI with a simple programming need which involved programming one of their online forms to submit its contents to a catalog request system. This was meant to stop Sunco Tanning staff members from having to manually log into the catalog request system and submitting the information they had received via the form submission.
Sunco Tanning was so satisfied with the work we did for them on this task that they then approached us to establish a full technology partnership. This included SEO optimization/marketing, support, programming and hosting services which are all offered by MVI. The partnership was established and MVI began the process of setting up their new custom-built dedicated server.
Before coming to MVI, the website was on a shared hosting account with another hosting company. MVI spent some time analyzing their existing site in its existing environment and formulated a plan for getting their site migrated over to a custom-built MVI managed the dedicated server. MVI then spent the next week configuring the new server and setting it up in their hosting facility.
During that time, MVI also created a plan on how to migrate their existing website from its old location to the new MVI location. This process required careful planning as to ensure the minimal amount of downtime to their website and email system. Once the new server was ready and the migration plan was complete, MVI and Sunco Tanning agreed on a date when everything would be moved over.
When the time came, MVI executed the migration plan and successfully moved everything (domains, website, email) with minimal downtime. Sunco Tanning has been an MVI hosting customer ever since and has been very satisfied with the level of service and support they have received.
