Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Hosting Blaze is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any type of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are many factors to bear in mind – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do try to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller–sized sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What information do you require?
A: We do not need any information that is sensitive. We will need, though, the login info for your present web hosting account along with the name of the website that you wish to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is update the NS records for your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
