Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The website migration service provided by PNGSME Web Services is totally free of charge and involves moving all your files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you need to consider – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What info do you need?
A: Yep. We will need to have the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are through with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will need to do is update the name server records associated with your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
