Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at Howard ITech Hosting is absolutely free and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings necessary for your sites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of factors to take into consideration – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do try to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What info do you require?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. After the migration is complete, we will make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to notifying you that the transfer is finished. After that, we’ll tell you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We will 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 matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
