Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at 1001server is absolutely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various variables that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not need any information that is personal. We will need, however, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records for your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
