Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your website, or when you face constant downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support staff to respond back to you, it may be smart to change your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Linux Hosts Inc., we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our capable technical team reps will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience migrating websites and can handle everything – from a common WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based website, to a very complex, custom–built app.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various variables that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What details do you require?
A: We don’t request any sensitive data. We will require, though, the login info for your current hosting account along with the name of the site that you’d like to move.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Nope. Your web site will stay reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
