Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service offered by Phillips Hosting is totally free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of web site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: There are many factors to keep in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable websites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the site that you would like us to move. We’ll also require a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records pertaining to your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
