Q: Why should I move my site? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service provided by eshreya is completely 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 update all the settings necessary for your web sites to be fully functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to consider – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nevertheless, we do our best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my website?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
