Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service available at Global Network Business is absolutely free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, because there are many variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not large).
Q: My privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS records for your domain. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
