Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my site be secure?
A: The web site migration service available at A Bit Server is completely free of cost and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of website. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several elements that you need to take into consideration – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you need to have?
A: We do not gather any private information. We will need, though, the login info for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you want to transfer.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site building and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
