Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service offered by Apni Hosting is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are many factors to keep in mind – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do try to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller web sites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the migration is complete, we will make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to telling you that the transfer is over. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to update your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
