Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service on offer at GNet Hosting is completely free and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings required for your sites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations ASAP. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you need to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What details do you require?
A: Yep. We will require the name of the web site that you wish us to move. We’ll also require a means to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain accessible online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary website building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
