Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service provided by Centunet Hosting is totally free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any site. With years of experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are many aspects to bear in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before informing you that the migration is done. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site building and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
