Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be safe?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your website, or when you experience continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond to you, it might be smart to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At My Hunt Host, we know that this can often be hard & time–consuming. This is why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our practiced technical staff reps will move your web site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to take care of everything – from a typical WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to an extremely complex, custom–built application.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you need to take into consideration – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We will require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your site will stay online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
