Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service on offer at Best Free Website Builder 2020 is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to perform all web site migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different variables that you need to take into consideration – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my website?
A: We don’t gather any personal information. We will need, however, the login info for your present web hosting account and the name of the site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. After the transfer is finished, we will make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before informing you that the migration is over. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
