Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service on offer at HialeahHosting.com is entirely free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are many variables to take into account – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do our best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you’d like us to transfer. We will also require a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the migration is done, we’ll make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before telling you that the migration is finished. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
