Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service provided by 360ProHosting is entirely free of charge and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations ASAP. However, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different facets that you need to take into consideration – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We will require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is modify the NS records pertaining to your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
