Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service offered by iHostingNet.Com is absolutely free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of website. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, because there are many variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to move your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not large).
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We will also require a means to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your web site will remain fully operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform as long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
