Q: Why do I have to transfer my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by Spdy VPS is totally free of charge and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings needed for your web sites to be completely functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring just about any website. With years of experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, since there are lots of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not large).
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We’ll require the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We will also require a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the migration is complete, we’ll make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before telling you that the transfer is finished. Then we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
