Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your site, or if you experience continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support staff to respond back to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Web Shark Hosting, we understand that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. Because of this, we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our knowledgeable technical staff members will transfer your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from a regular WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built application.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are many variables to bear in mind – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is finished, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to notifying you that the migration is done. Then we’ll tell you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
