Unless quoted for and is stated on your invoice the client does not have access to the website files or indeed ftp information. Most sites are built using a free central admin system so in those instances no website files can be supplied or moved onto a different server. If you want access to the website files please ask us to quote for this at the outset.
The scripts and coding used for building the website is owned by Core.
In the instance where no request was made at the outset and it is possible to move the site a fee may be negotiated to supply the files.
