Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service provided by MHLS Cloud Services is completely free and involves transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings required for your web sites to be fully functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving just about any site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: There are plenty of factors to keep in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour window. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We don’t collect any personal information. We will require, though, the login info for your old hosting account and the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your site will remain completely operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
