Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration include?
A: The website migration service provided by Site Host Pros is absolutely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long will it take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different variables that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What information do you need?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the site that you want us to migrate. We will also require a means to log in to your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
