Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service on offer at Christian Web Hosting is totally free and involves moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings necessary for your sites to be fully functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, because there are plenty of factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is important to me. What information do you need?
A: We will need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site creation and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
