Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service provided by ProfitSharingHost.com is completely free of cost and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to think about – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That said, we do try to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What details do you need to have?
A: We don’t need any sensitive info. We’ll require, though, the login info for your present hosting account and the name of the web site that you wish to transfer.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
