Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The web site migration service available at TrafficHostCity is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings required for your sites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring just about any website. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of variables to take into account – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you would like us to migrate. We will also need a way to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your site will stay reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary website building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
