Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service on offer at WP WEB SPACE is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, since there are lots of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the content is not large).
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not need any sensitive details. We will need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your website will remain reachable online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform as long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
