Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service available at Posiedon Hosting is entirely free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What details do you need?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is update the name server records pertaining to your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
