Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at come2buy web hosting is absolutely free of charge and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings needed for your sites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several aspects that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need to have?
A: We do not require any information that is sensitive. We’ll need, though, the login info for your current hosting account as well as the name of the site that you wish to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nah. Your website will stay online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
