Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service available at Huge Hosting Deals is completely free and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of website. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the total amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Even so, we do try to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nope. Your web site will stay accessible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is alright, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform as long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
