Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service offered by Liverpool Bay - Hosting Solutions is absolutely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your sites to be completely functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you have to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t collect any personal data. We will require, however, the login information for your present hosting account and the name of the website that you need to move.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records for your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
