Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or if you suffer from constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care staff to reply to you, it might be a good idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Hoststreak, we understand that this can be difficult and time–consuming. That is the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly capable technical team reps will migrate your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from a normal WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to an extremely complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, since there are lots of variables, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to move your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (if the content is not large).
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We will require the name of the website that you’d like us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before informing you that the migration is completed. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
