Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service offered by HostMagia is absolutely free and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain variables that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What info do you need to have?
A: Yep. We will require the name of the website that you’d like us to transfer. We will also require a means to access your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. After we are through with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is edit the name server records associated with your domain. Your website will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
