Q: Why do I need to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service provided by USA Web Hosting 2020 is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are many variables, including the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We’ll also require a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS resource records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
