Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be safe?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your site, or when you go through constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer support staff to get back to you, it may be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At REBISCO Corporate & Business Domains Hosting, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our competent technical staff reps will move your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience with web site migration and are able to handle anything – from a customary WordPress–based weblog or Joomla–based website, to a highly complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, because there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to transfer your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We’ll need the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. After the migration is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is over. After that, we will instruct you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
