Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your site, or if you undergo constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the tech support team to reply to you, it might be a good idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At NameHost.us - Name Hosting In One Business by William Nabaza, we understand that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our expert technical staff will transfer your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to take care of anything – from a standard WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ web site, to an extremely complex, custom–made application.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, because there are plenty of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to transfer your web site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We don’t gather any private details. We will need, however, the login info for your current hosting account along with the name of the web site that you need to migrate.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
