Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your website, or when you undergo regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer support team to reply back to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Free Green Website Hosting, we realize that this can be hard & time consuming. For this reason, we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our knowledgeable technical staff will migrate your site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience with website migration and are able to handle anything from a customary WordPress powered weblog or Joomla™ web site, to an extremely complex, custom made app.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain factors that you have to consider the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my site?
A: We don’t require any information that is private. We’ll need, however, the login information for your old web hosting account and the name of the web site that you would like to migrate.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to notifying you that the transfer is over. Then we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows driven web hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary site creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
