Q: Why do I have to move my website? What does web site migration include?
A: The web site migration service available at USDC Hosting is completely free of charge and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving just about any web site. With years of experience in the industry, they are well–versed 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 elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are a lot of variables to take into account – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We will need the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Nope. Your site will stay accessible online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform given that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
