Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or if you face frequent downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support staff to respond back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At UHOST, we are aware that this can be difficult & time–consuming. Because of this, we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our qualified technical staff will move your web site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have extensive experience with web site migration and can take care of anything – from a typical WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™–driven web site, to a very complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various elements that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t need any sensitive information. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you want to migrate.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your website will stay accessible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
