Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service provided by El Hosting Barato is absolutely free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings necessary for your websites to be completely functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, because there are a lot of factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not large).
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not need any personal info. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current hosting account and the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline 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 old hosting provider. Once the migration is completed, we’ll make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before notifying you that the transfer is complete. After that, we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider won’t 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–driven web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
