Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The website migration service available at HostingOn is absolutely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of site. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several aspects that you need to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What details do you need?
A: We do not gather any sensitive information. We will need, though, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
