Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Hosting is absolutely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: There are many aspects to consider – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Yet, we do try to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What info do you need to have?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you would like us to move. We will also require a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: No. Your website will remain fully operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
