Q: Why should I transfer my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Foiltek Web Hosting is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your websites to be completely operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Still, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the website that you would like us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: No. Your website will stay completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
