Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: The web site migration service provided by Diversity Hosting Services is entirely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of web site. With years of experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: We try to accomplish all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain things that you have to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What data do you need?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a way to log in to your present hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be visible online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
