Q: Why do I need to transfer my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service available at eBizm Web Hosting is absolutely free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also update all the settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be transferred to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you need to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need?
A: We do not require any private info. We’ll need, however, the login info for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you would like to migrate.
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. After the transfer is done, we will make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before telling you that the transfer is finished. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform as long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
