Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be safe?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Linux Hosts Inc. is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be completely functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of web 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, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, because there are plenty of variables, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We will need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your site will stay completely operational during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
