Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: The web site migration service available at Shared Web Host is completely free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be completely functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to perform all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What information do you require?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we’ll make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before telling you that the transfer is done. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
