Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the demands of your site, or when you experience continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the tech support team to reply back to you, it may be a good idea to change your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At One Website Hosting, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our highly competent technical team representatives will transfer your web site content from your current provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience migrating websites and can handle anything – from a conventional WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long can it take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several facets that you need to consider – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What details do you require?
A: We don’t collect any personal info. We will need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are through with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is change the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
