Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service available at 1MB Corporation is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of site. With years of experience behind their backs, 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 app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved over to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are lots of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We will require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your site will remain fully operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
