Q: Why should I move my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service provided by POS WEB HOSTING is absolutely free of charge and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are many aspects to take into account – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do our very best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We’ll need the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your website will continue to be fully operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary website building and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
