Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Webeol Hosting is completely free and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be completely operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to bear in mind – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the name server resource records for your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site building and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
