Q: Why do I have to transfer my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service available at NUMBER ONE TRADES is absolutely free of cost and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails 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 websites to be completely functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to think about – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller web sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the site that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a means to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the migration is done, we will make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is over. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
