Q: Why do I have to move my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service available at hilagawebhosting.com is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any type of site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, because there are a lot of variables, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to migrate your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the website that you want us to move. We will also need a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Nope. Your site will stay online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
