Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service on offer at Happy Web Hosting is entirely free and involves moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, because there are lots of variables, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to migrate your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any sensitive data. We’ll require, though, the login information for your current hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Nah. Your web site will stay online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is edit your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
