Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration entail?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your site, or when you experience continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At HostUNi, we are aware that this can be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our professional technical team members will migrate your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla CMS–based website, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various aspects that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Nope. Your website will remain available online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
