Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The website migration service available at Audiospecific is entirely free of charge and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any type of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, since there are many factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the content is not very large).
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any information that is private. We’ll need, though, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the web site that you’d like to move.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is over, we will ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to informing you that the migration is finished. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
