Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service available at Vulehost is completely free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of website. With years of experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web app with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are many variables to keep in mind – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to access your old hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your site will remain online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all conventional Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
