Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Trusted Web Hosting is totally free of cost and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of work experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Still, we do try to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We do not need any sensitive details. We will require, though, the login info for your current web hosting account and the name of the web site that you want to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is change the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
