Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my web site be safe?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer meet the demands of your website, or when you experience frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer support staff to respond back to you, it may be smart to change your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Host On Inter.NET, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is why we will perform all that for you for free!Our trained technical staff members will move your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience with website migration and are able to take care of anything – from a regular WordPress blog or Joomla™–based website, to an extremely complex, custom–built app.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time interval, since there are a lot of factors, among them the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not large).
Q: What info will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is edit the name server records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary website creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
