Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service offered by H T V HOSTING is absolutely free of cost 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 will also edit all the settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What info do you require?
A: Yup. We will require the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a means to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the transfer is done, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before telling you that the transfer is done. After that, we will tell you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
