Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service available at Domain Courier is completely free of cost and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, since there are lots of variables, including the physical size of the web 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’ll try our very best to move your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you need?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also require a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the migration is done, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the transfer is complete. Then we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
