Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service available at Pueblo West Host is totally free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of website. With years of experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be moved to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise ETA, since there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
