Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: The website migration service offered by EXPRESShostings is absolutely free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are lots of aspects to take into consideration – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do try to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What data do you need?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We will also require a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Nope. Your website will stay available online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
