Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Anakin Webhosting is completely free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your sites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of factors to keep in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our very best to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: No. Your web site will remain available online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
