Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at Great Host Server is totally free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be completely operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any website. With years of experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various variables that you need to take into account – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: No. Your website will continue to be visible online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
