Q: Why do I have to move my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service available at web and server hosting services is entirely free and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your present provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings required for your sites to be completely functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of website. With years of experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are plenty of variables to consider – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any information that is sensitive. We’ll need, however, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you need to migrate.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Nah. Your website will remain visible online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
