Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service available at The Hobby Line Internet is absolutely free and involves transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings required for your sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of website. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are lots of variables to take into consideration – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do try to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable websites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What data do you need to have?
A: We don’t require any private info. We’ll require, however, the login information for your present hosting account and the name of the website that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the migration is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before notifying you that the migration is complete. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
