Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at Cheap-PHP-Hosting is absolutely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings required for your sites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of web site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are many variables to keep in mind – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our best to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We don’t require any personal details. We will require, though, the login information for your current hosting account as well as the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is change the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider will not 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 migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform so long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
