Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my web site be safe?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer meet the demands of your web site, or when you face regular network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer support team to respond to you, it may be a good idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At 2host4u.co.uk, we realize that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical staff will migrate your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from an average WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™–driven web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of variables to take into consideration – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We do not need any information that is sensitive. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present hosting account along with the name of the site that you wish to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. After the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to informing you that the transfer is done. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
