Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service provided by 212 Hosting Professional is absolutely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings needed for your websites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the web 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 try our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not large).
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What data do you need?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your website will stay fully operational during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
