Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service provided by My Webbie Hosting is completely free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings required for your web sites to be completely operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are plenty of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We will require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. Once the transfer is complete, we will make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to informing you that the migration is completed. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
