Will my hosting price increase?
We will make every effort to match services at similar or improved pricing. In addition, we will move those with usage-based Cloud Services to a flat rate that matches your average utilization. This will simplify billing and allow you to better forecast your hosting costs going forward. 

Will my existing services change?

We will aim to keep services on similar or enhanced platforms, depending on the current technology you use. 

  • Customers with Managed WordPress services or complete VPSs will move to our Nexcess Managed WordPress products. Feel free to review our complete list of Solutions and Services
  • Customers with other hosting types will move to different platforms with comparable features on Liquid Web. Check out the complete list of our Solutions and Services.
  • Other non-hosting products from Cloud Commerce, such as marketing or advertising, will continue to be serviced from Cloud Commerce.

Will my IP addresses change?

Depending on the current technology in use, yes, IP addresses may need to be updated at your nameservers. We will guide you through the necessary changes if and when the time comes to do so.

Whom do I contact for support?

You will soon be contacted with details on your specific server upgrade to the combined platform. Once your server is upgraded, you may contact Liquid Web or Nexcess 24/7/365 by telephone, live chat, or email. Before your upgrade, you will continue using current Cloud Commerce support channels.

How do I pay my bill and manage my account?

You will soon be able to view your online billing and support account. You’ll be receiving more information on this, along with comprehensive instructions, in the very near future through an individualized ticket. Until the migration is complete, you will continue to pay for your server as you always have.

What changes in Billing?

Liquid Web and Nexcess billing terms, payment options, and invoice dates will differ slightly from Cloud Commerce. However, you will find they are typical within the hosting industry. A few things to note:

  • Usage-based customers will be moved to a flat monthly fee, creating a much more predictable billing experience. 
  • Liquid Web does not offer biennial billing, so those on a biennial payment cycle will be moved to annual. 
  • The bill date for your next service period should be the same as it is today. However, if we do have to change your billing date, we will keep it as close to your original date as possible and prorate your bill.
  • Customers using PayPal subscriptions will need to sign up for PayPal recurring payments.

It will be important to confirm your payment information is correct after the migration is completed to ensure it has transferred correctly.

How do I order new or additional services?

We’ll be working with you to choose the best solution before beginning the migration. If you need to upgrade or order new services beyond those you already have, please contact the Sales team for Liquid Web or Nexcess and let our Solutions Advisors know that you are being migrated from Cloud Commerce. 

Will my sites be migrated to a new location? If so, what are you doing to ensure a smooth transition?

Your data will be cloned from its existing location to one of our data centers here in Michigan. The types of data we can collect depends on the access level available at the source host. But in general, we will be able to completely copy your website and its supporting databases. You may experience a small amount of downtime during a maintenance window we will provide you, and this will be communicated and scheduled well in advance. 

What about the remainder of my Cloud Commerce services?

Only your site hosting, site support, email hosting, and domain registration services will be transferred to Liquid Web or Nexcess. All other services, such as Marketing, Site Development, or Advertising, will continue to be served by Cloud Commerce.
