Q: Why should I move my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Vidahost Computer Technologies is absolutely free of charge and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your sites to be fully functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring just about any site. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller websites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the site that you would like us to transfer. We will also need a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. Once the transfer is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the transfer is finished. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to update your DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
