Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service offered by webworldhosting is totally free of charge and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings required for your web sites to be completely operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different facets that you have to consider – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We will need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your site will continue to be reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
