(mt) Media Temple, Inc. - 07/11/2012
LOS ANGELES — July 11, 2012 - (mt) Media Temple, a leading provider of web hosting and cloud services, announced the public release of Otto, a new people-powered concierge service that allows users to effortlessly transfer websites, domains, and applications to Media Temple. Not only is Otto one of the simplest methods in the industry for switching hosting providers, it is also one of the most cost efficient. A website transfer can be executed for $150 per site and as little as $25 per domain.
In the past, transferring domains, websites, and applications, has been a huge undertaking, involving hours of work and complicated logistics. Otto simplifies migration from the customer’s current host to Media Temple’s trusted hosting services, providing immediate access to the company’s wide array of useful site tools and personalized customer service. With Otto, clients of any size from massively trafficked media sites to burgeoning bloggers – can literally sit back and let a team of specialists do the work for them.
Otto offers two useful components to prospective movers. The SiteMover service automatically moves websites to, or even from, (mt) Media Temple, while DomainMover seamlessly transfers .com, .net, .org, and other commonly registered domains. Additionally, SiteMover will audit any widget or plug-in on the site being moved and, wherever possible, update it to the most recent version, providing better site performance and security.
“People are always asking (mt) Media Temple to help them move from their existing hosting provider to one they can brag about to their customers,” said Russell P. Reeder President and COO at (mt) Media Temple. “We built Otto to remove the headaches that come with moving websites, apps, and domains so that customers can focus on the more important—and fun—aspects of creating their websites.”
