Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service offered by GB Hosting is completely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of aspects to think about – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do try to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
