Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service provided by WebWorx Hosting is entirely free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings needed for your sites to be completely operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, since there are plenty of variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you need to have?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We will also require a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records for your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
