Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The website migration service available at The Unlimited Hosting is entirely free of charge and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different elements that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your website will continue to be fully operational during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
