Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: The web site migration service provided by ExecoHost is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of web 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 well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different variables that you need to take into consideration – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What details do you need?
A: We do not gather any personal details. We will need, however, the login info for your present web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
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 completed, we’ll make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before telling you that the transfer is completed. After that, we will instruct you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all common Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
