Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service offered by Evolution System Hosting is totally free of cost and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, since there are plenty of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not large).
Q: What data will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not need any sensitive data. We will require, though, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the website that you wish to move.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Nope. Your site will stay reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
