Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service provided by 900Domains.com is completely free of charge and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be completely operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring just about any site. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various facets 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 strive to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you require?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the migration is over, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before telling you that the transfer is complete. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web 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.
