Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service on offer at JeffHost.com is entirely free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various factors that you need to take into account – the actual size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We don’t collect any information that is personal. We’ll require, though, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is change the NS records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site building and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
