Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by Roy Hosting is entirely free and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be completely functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any type of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time interval, since there are a lot of variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the website that you want us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log in to your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Nope. Your site will continue to be online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform as long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
