Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at Linux Hosts Ltd. is totally free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are plenty of factors to take into consideration – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the web site that you want us to move. We will also need a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: No. Your site will stay completely operational during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Basically, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
