Forum Installations, imports & Upgrades
Perhaps you have a forum already but have the wish to switch to Xenforo? SchmitzIT can help you install, import and convert your current forum platforum to Xenforo, making sure you transfer all members and data from your old forum to your new Xenforo platform. If you wish your new forum to look like the old one, then talk with us and hear about our design offers. We are experienced in 'copying' styles from 'old' forums to new Xenforo forums to make them look alike as much as possible.
Perhaps you don't yet have a forum - but wish to start a community of some kind? SchmitzIT can help you install your new forum and make sure it's up running in no time! You need a style? SchmitzIT can help you designing and styling your forum so it fits with your desires.
When you hire SchmitzIT to perform a XenForo license, there are a few things we will need from you:
- A licensed version of the xenForo software (can be purchased here: www.xenforo.com)
- FTP, cPanel or similar access to your server, to be able to upload the forum software
- A database name, login, and password for the XenForo database to reside in
- The desired title for the forum, the name of the administrative user, and a contact E-mail address
We can also offer you help obtain a XenForo license, secure you a domain name, or hosting on one of our Virtual Private Servers (VPS) for a low monthly fee. We also “rent out” Xenforo licenses, which means you will not have to pay for a full license in one go, but can obtain the right to use one of our licenses using a monthly payment plan.
Should you have special wishes, or in case you want to combine domain registration with hosting and a forum installation, or perhaps specialised wishes, please do not hesitate to contact us!
When hiring us, you will of course receive an invoice for your administration.
Payment-wise, we request a payment of 50% of the quoted work to be paid upfront, with the remaining 50% payable after completion. We accept both Paypal or bank transfer.
