Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The website migration service available at Hafsa.com is completely free of cost and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different elements that you have to take into account – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We do not request any personal details. We will require, though, the login info for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you wish to migrate.
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.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.
