Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service offered by Samiane is totally free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to consider – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my website?
A: We will require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: No. Your site will remain online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
