Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the demands of your website, or when you face regular network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk staff to respond to you, it may be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Devil's Host, we realize that this can be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our highly accomplished technical staff will move your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a standard WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a highly complex, custom–built web app.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time interval, because there are lots of variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to move your web site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not very large).
Q: My privacy concerns me. What info do you require?
A: We will require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will remain completely operational during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your 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. In essence, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
