Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my web site be safe?
A: The web site migration service available at Sites2Web - Website Hosting is entirely free and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be completely functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are a lot of variables, including the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not large).
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you need?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
