Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: The website migration service provided by AS Web Hosting is absolutely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise ETA, because there are a lot of factors, including the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to access your old hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we move your web site, 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 transfer is over, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before informing you that the transfer is finished. Then we’ll tell you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
