Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your site, or when you suffer from continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support staff to get back to you, it might be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At NHShost, we realize that this can often be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we will do all that for you for free!Our skilled technical staff members will transfer your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to take care of anything – from a regular WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, since there are lots of variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to transfer your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy concerns me. What info do you require?
A: Yes. We will need the name of the web site that you wish us to move. We’ll also require a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Nope. Your site will stay available online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
