Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by Web Hosting Galore 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 fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving just about any web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain elements that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yeah. We’ll require the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a way to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
