Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The website migration service offered by Shaun Holt is completely 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’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to take into consideration – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do our best to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: Yep. We will require the name of the website that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a way to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform provided that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
