Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service provided by DNA HOSTING is absolutely free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain elements that you have to take into account – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We don’t gather any sensitive details. We will need, however, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the web site that you wish to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server records pertaining to your domain name. Your web site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary website building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
