Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service available at Loftlin Solutions is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several aspects that you have to take into account – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is change the name server records corresponding to your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also do not support proprietary website creation and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
