Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service provided by WorldwebOne is absolutely free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are lots of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We don’t require any personal details. We will need, however, the login info for your current hosting account as well as the name of the site that you want to transfer.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
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. After the transfer is done, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before informing you that the transfer is completed. Then we will instruct you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
