Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service available at Getya Hosting is completely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, since there are plenty of variables, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to transfer your web site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We do not request any personal info. We’ll require, however, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the site that you wish to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your site will stay accessible online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
