Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your site, or when you undergo continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care team to respond to you, it might be smart to change your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Hosting 4 Marketing, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. That’s why we will do all that for you for free!Our expert technical team reps will transfer your web site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from a conventional WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based website, to a very complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various things that you need to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you require?
A: We don’t collect any information that is personal. We will need, though, the login information for your old hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to move.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is update the NS records associated with your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
