Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: The web site migration service provided by NetAtNet Web Hosting is totally free of charge and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of site. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: There are many variables to take into account – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. However, we do try to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will require the name of the web site that you’d like us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
