Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: The website migration service provided by Hosting Gratuito is completely free of cost and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings required for your sites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time can it take?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We don’t require any sensitive data. We will need, though, the login info for your present hosting account along with the name of the web site that you need to transfer.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will remain accessible online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
