Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service offered by Interface Hosting is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your sites to be completely functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are a lot of variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to move your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We will require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. When we have finished the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is modify the name server records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
