Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: The website migration service offered by Best Value Web Hosting is totally free and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any website. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time interval, because there are plenty of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our best to move your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: No. Your site will continue to be reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain 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 management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
