Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The website migration service provided by WebHost-ing.com is totally free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any type of website. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, since there are many factors, including the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to transfer your web site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We don’t gather any personal data. We’ll require, though, the login info for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: No. Your website will continue to be available online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will 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.
