Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service available at Besthosting is completely free and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings needed for your websites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are many factors to take into account – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour window. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We will need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nah. Your website will stay completely operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
