Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Hosting At Its Best is absolutely free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do try to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nah. Your site will remain available online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform on condition that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
