Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service available at Host India is completely free of charge and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any website. With years of experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain aspects that you need to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller websites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you need?
A: We do not request any private information. We’ll need, however, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you would like to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the migration is done, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before telling you that the transfer is done. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
