Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service available at Space Hosting is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several aspects that you need to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What details do you need to have?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you want us to move. We will also require a means to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be fully operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site creation and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
