Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Ezi Web Hosting Services is entirely free and consists of moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of website. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several facets that you need to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We do not require any information that is private. We’ll require, however, the login info for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
