Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my site be secure?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your website, or when you undergo regular network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client support staff to respond back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Best Choice Hosting, we are aware that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly accomplished technical team reps will move your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience with web site migration and can take care of anything – from a typical WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a very complex, custom–made app.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different things that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: We will need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your site will remain accessible online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
