Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Esynchost is entirely free of charge and consists of 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 settings needed for your websites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Even so, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you need to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive data. We’ll need, though, the login info for your current hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary web site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
