Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my web site be secure?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Hostbot is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various things that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: Yeah. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you’d like us to move. We will also require a means to access your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your website will remain visible online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
