Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at Host-Crunch Web Hosting is entirely free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are many aspects to consider – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not collect any sensitive data. We’ll need, however, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before telling you that the transfer is over. After that, we’ll tell you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
