Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service available at AngelStarHosting is absolutely free and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of website. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long can it take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several elements that you have to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my website?
A: We don’t gather any sensitive information. We’ll require, however, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you need to transfer.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. After the migration is completed, we’ll make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before notifying you that the migration is done. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
