Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service available at e-webhosting is totally free of charge and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring just about any site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are many factors to take into account – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do try to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller websites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my site?
A: We do not need any private details. We will need, however, the login info for your present web hosting account along with the name of the website that you wish to transfer.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done 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’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
