Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service available at Duoservers.co.uk is completely free of charge and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web application with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are a lot of factors to keep in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized websites are transferred faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: Yeah. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you want us to move. We’ll also require a means to log into your current hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
