Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service provided by nuWebHosts is entirely free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be fully operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are lots of variables to take into consideration – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller sites are migrated faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nope. Your website will continue to be online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
