Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service on offer at WPHosting.club is totally free of charge and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to take into consideration – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. However, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive details. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present hosting account along with the name of the website that you want to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the migration is done, we’ll ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the transfer is complete. Then we will tell you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yes. We support all traditional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
