Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be safe?
A: The web site migration service provided by W.H.A.T. Internet Solutions is totally free of charge and consists of transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be completely functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are many factors to keep in mind – the total number 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 try to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: No. Your website will remain reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
