Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service provided by Super Cheap Web Hosting is completely free and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your sites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you need to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the website that you’d like us to transfer. We will also require a means to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
