Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service provided by HostingGANG is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the settings required for your web sites to be completely operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any web site. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are plenty of variables to keep in mind – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable websites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What data do you need?
A: We will require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records for your domain name. Your web site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web 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 web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform on condition that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
