Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at DMcGee Domain Names Based and Hosting is entirely free and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various factors that you need to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a means to log into your current hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: No. Your website will remain available online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
