Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service provided by Best Rate On is entirely free and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several elements that you need to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you require?
A: We will need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. Once the transfer is finished, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before telling you that the transfer is complete. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. In essence, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
