Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service available at LiquidNet Ltd Hosting is completely free of cost and consists of moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are lots of variables to consider – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized sites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What details do you require?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you would like us to transfer. We will also need a means to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. Once the migration is complete, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to telling you that the transfer is completed. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll 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 any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
