Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be safe?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your website, or if you experience constant downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer support team to respond back to you, it might be a good idea to switch your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Hosting Shop, we realize that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That’s why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our skillful technical staff reps will transfer your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from a common WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly complex, custom–made app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various aspects that you need to consider – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We’ll need the login details 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 rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website building and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
