Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at Einhost is completely free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving just about any website. With years of work experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are many variables, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What details do you need?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive information. We will need, however, the login info for your old hosting account and the name of the site that you want to migrate.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will continue to be visible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
