Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service available at Legit Host is absolutely free of charge and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings needed for your sites to be completely operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are a lot of variables to take into account – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Still, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What details do you require?
A: We don’t need any sensitive data. We will require, however, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the migration is over. Then we will tell you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
