Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at SINIUM is absolutely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of website. With years of experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: There are plenty of variables to take into account – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do try to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable sites are transferred faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my website?
A: We will need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain available online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform as long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
