Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service provided by OWS Hosting is absolutely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also update all the settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any web site. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: There are plenty of variables to keep in mind – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will remain completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform so long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
