Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration include?
A: The web site migration service on offer at FATCITIES HOSTING is completely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What information do you need?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the website that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is finished, we’ll make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before notifying you that the transfer is complete. After that, we will instruct you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
