Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service available at Blue Moon Hosting is totally free of charge and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, 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, transferring a custom web application with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, because there are plenty of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
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 trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain visible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
