Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service provided by Ultimate Hosting is absolutely free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain things that you have to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need to have?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the migration is done, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before telling you that the migration is complete. Then we will explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
