Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service provided by A3HOSTING.NET is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are 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–built web app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different elements that you have to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the site that you’d like us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. After we are through with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all conventional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
