Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my website be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your web site, or if you experience continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service staff to respond back to you, it might be smart to change your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Riseshost Hosting, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That’s why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our professional technical team reps will move your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience with website migration and can take care of everything – from a traditional WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are plenty of factors to take into account – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do try to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the site that you’d like us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your web site will remain reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
