Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service provided by Englishtutors.info is entirely free and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any website. With years of work experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to keep in mind – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: We do not request any private information. We’ll need, though, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the transfer is finished, we will make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised prior to telling you that the transfer is completed. After that, we will instruct you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform given that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
