Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your web site, or when you go through continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply to you, it might be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At DSF Hosting, we are aware that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our capable technical staff representatives will transfer your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from an average WordPress weblog or Joomla™–driven web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain elements that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a means to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will continue to be reachable online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
