Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the needs of your web site, or when you go through constant downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the support staff to get back to you, it might be a good idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Khalsa Host, we are aware that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly competent technical staff members will migrate your web site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience with web site migration and can handle anything – from a regular WordPress weblog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are lots of factors to bear in mind – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized websites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the website that you would like us to transfer. We will also require a means to access your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Nope. Your site will remain completely operational 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 any problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
