Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service on offer at SAN FRANCISCO SERVER is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various elements that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you need to have?
A: Yep. We will require the name of the site that you want us to move. We will also need a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting 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 resource records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
