Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at Netspeed Hosting is entirely free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: We try to accomplish all web site migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain factors that you have to consider – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive details. We’ll need, however, the login info for your present hosting account along with the name of the web site that you need to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your web site will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
