Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service on offer at TopDomainCheck.com is entirely free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are plenty of factors to keep in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. That said, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Less sizeable websites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is update the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
