Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at rasi Hosting is completely free and consists of moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are plenty of factors to keep in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable websites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the website that you want us to transfer. We will also need a means to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we are through with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records for your domain. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
