Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at ForUpTime.com is completely free of charge and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings necessary for your sites to be fully operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you need to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We don’t collect any private info. We’ll require, however, the login info for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you would like to move.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. After the transfer is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to telling you that the transfer is done. Then we’ll explain to you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
