Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service provided by WebHosting-Store.net is entirely free of charge and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, since there are plenty of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the 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 best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the content is not large).
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your web site will stay visible online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is edit your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
