Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service available at Quickhost is totally free of charge and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time will it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, because there are many factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you require?
A: Yes. We’ll require the name of the web site that you want us to move. We will also require a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is modify the NS records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
