Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Host Source is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any sort of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are many variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not large).
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will need the name of the web site that you want us to transfer. We will also need a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Nah. Your website will continue to be fully operational during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
