Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my website be safe?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your site, or when you experience regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care team to respond back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Quality Hosting Services, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. This is why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our highly knowledgeable technical staff representatives will move your website content from your current provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
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 current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you require?
A: We don’t request any personal data. We will need, though, the login info for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to move.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your web site will stay fully operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
