Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service provided by 646s.com is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, since there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to migrate your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the content is not very large).
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We will also require a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will continue to be completely operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
