Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service available at SERVE22 is totally free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any site. With years of experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We will require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also do not support proprietary site building and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
