Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service available at Internic Search is entirely free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are lots of aspects to take into account – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my website?
A: Yep. We will need to have the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We’ll also need a means to log in to your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. As soon as the migration is finished, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to informing you that the transfer is over. After that, we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
