Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my website be secure?
A: The website migration service provided by Host a Domain is absolutely free of cost and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web app with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time interval, because there are plenty of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be fully operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Basically, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
