Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer meet the needs of your site, or if you suffer from continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply to you, it might be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Easy Street Hosting, we understand that this can be hard & time–consuming. That is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our seasoned technical staff members will move your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience migrating web sites and are able to handle anything – from a typical WordPress weblog or Joomla™–based site, to a very complex, custom–built app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: There are lots of variables to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do try to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour window. Less sizeable websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is change the name server records for your domain name. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
