Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at Peanksoft Web Hosting Services is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different variables that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive data. We will require, though, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the site that you want to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website 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 previous hosting provider. Once the migration is over, we’ll make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before informing you that the migration is over. After that, we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform as long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
