Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service provided by Flicker Hosting is totally free of cost and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any type of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: There are many aspects to think about – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable websites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What details do you need?
A: We don’t request any information that is sensitive. We’ll need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you wish to transfer.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the transfer is done, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to telling you that the transfer is finished. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to change your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all common Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
