Q: Why do I have to transfer my site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at Quality Discount Hosting is entirely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings required for your web sites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of work experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are plenty of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to migrate your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the content is not very large).
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Nope. Your web site will stay accessible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
