Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service on offer at s2f hosting is totally free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web app with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain things that you need to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What data do you need to have?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. When the transfer is completed, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised prior to informing you that the transfer is over. Then we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to update your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.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.
