Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service offered by Net Commercial is completely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are lots of aspects to consider – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable websites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform so long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
