Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service provided by Heartland Web Hosting is completely free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of work experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are many aspects to keep in mind – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do our very best to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour time period. Smaller web sites are migrated much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We will require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: No. Your web site will stay completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
