Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be safe?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your website, or if you undergo continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the support team to respond to you, it might be a clever idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At HostLoaded.com, we realize that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you for free!Our highly professional technical team representatives will migrate your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience with website migration and can handle anything – from a standard WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a highly complex, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you need to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yeah. We’ll require the name of the site that you want us to transfer. We’ll also require a way to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records for your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
