Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be safe?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the necessities of your website, or if you undergo constant network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care team to get back to you, it may be smart to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At FunWebHost.com, we are aware that this can often be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly proficient technical staff representatives will move your site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience with website migration and can take care of anything – from a typical WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to a very elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time interval, because there are a lot of factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
