Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service provided by Allure Hosting is completely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several things that you need to take into account – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any sensitive data. We’ll require, though, the login information for your old web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you want to move.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your website will remain completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your 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 providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
