Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Rapid Website Hosting is completely free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings needed for your websites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: There are many aspects to take into account – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized sites are transferred faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What data do you require?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also require a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is over. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yep. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
