Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be secure?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your website, or if you experience continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care team to respond to you, it may be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At WebHosting.co.nr, we know that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we will perform all that for you for free!Our trained technical staff members will transfer your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a normal WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several aspects that you need to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: Yep. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a means to access your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is complete, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is done. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
