Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service offered by DICTAHOST is totally free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of website. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several facets that you have to consider – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What info do you need to have?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We will also need a means to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: No. Your website will remain visible online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
