Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your website, or if you go through continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk team to respond to you, it may be a clever idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At My Hosting Beats, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly skilled technical staff representatives will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from a normal WordPress blog or Joomla™ website, to a highly complex, custom–built web app.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various elements that you need to take into account – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What information do you need to have?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we have completed the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is change the NS records associated with your domain. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform given that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is 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.
