Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by Best247Hosting.com is totally free and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved over to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain factors that you need to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We do not gather any information that is personal. We’ll require, however, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you wish to migrate.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. Once the transfer is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before telling you that the migration is completed. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
