Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service available at Belgium Hosting is totally free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings required for your sites to be fully operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring just about any website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain factors that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We do not need any sensitive data. We will need, though, the login info for your old web hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your web site will stay online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
