Q: Why should I move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your site, or if you go through constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer service staff to get back to you, it may be a clever idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At khan Hosting, we are aware that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly knowledgeable technical team will migrate your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress weblog or Joomla™–based web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain elements that you have to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What details do you need?
A: We don’t collect any private data. We will need, however, the login information for your present hosting account and the name of the site that you need to move.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the migration is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before notifying you that the transfer is finished. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
