Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service offered by StikiHosting is entirely free of cost and involves moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings required for your sites to be fully operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are many variables to keep in mind – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do try to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We don’t need any sensitive details. We’ll require, though, the login information for your current web hosting account and the name of the web site that you wish to migrate.
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the NS records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
