Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service provided by Yates Web Solutions is totally free of charge and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: There are many variables to think about – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you need to have?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the site that you’d like us to transfer. We will also require a means to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web 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.
