Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service provided by 1clickhosting is completely free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be completely operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain things that you have to consider – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: Yep. We will need the name of the site that you want us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is change the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
