Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service provided by Web Hosting by Core Life is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of site. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are lots of variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to transfer your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the website content is not very large).
Q: What info will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is edit the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform so long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
