Q: Why should I move my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The web site migration service provided by Host Blazers is entirely free of charge and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also update all the settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of web site. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are many factors to keep in mind – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the site that you would like us to move. We will also require a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the migration is complete, we will make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before informing you that the transfer is over. After that, we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
