Q: Why do I have to move my website? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service available at SGK Hosting is entirely free of charge and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, since there are a lot of factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to move your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my website?
A: We will require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Basically, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
