Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Shazi Hosting is completely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time window, since there are a lot of variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to move your web site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t require any private details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your current hosting account along with the name of the website that you’d like to migrate.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your website will stay reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
