Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service available at ComNetwork is entirely free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any type of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several facets that you need to consider – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also require a way to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the migration is completed, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is over. Then we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
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 transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
