Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my site be secure?
A: The web site migration service provided by Winsel Hosting Duoservers is absolutely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any type of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain factors that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What info do you need to have?
A: We will need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. Once the transfer is over, we’ll ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized before notifying you that the transfer is finished. Then we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
