Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service provided by EvadTekHosting is completely free and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different aspects that you need to take into account – the actual size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the website that you would like us to move. We’ll also need a means to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS records associated with your domain name. Your site will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site building and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
