Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at Abenet Hosting is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of aspects to bear in mind – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We do not require any information that is private. We will need, though, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: No. Your website will continue to be reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
