Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service available at Unlimit Hosting Provider is completely free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings needed for your websites to be completely functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be moved to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, since there are a lot of factors, including the size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not very large).
Q: My privacy concerns me. What info do you need to have?
A: We do not gather any private details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to move.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is finished, we will ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before informing you that the transfer is done. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary website creation and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
