Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: The website migration service offered by Domain Hunter is entirely free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you need to take into account – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you would like us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log in to your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your web site will remain visible online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
