Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service offered by Hostddl.com is totally free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time interval, because there are lots of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to transfer your web site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What info do you require?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the website that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also need a way to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will stay available online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
