Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service provided by Supreme Server Host is entirely free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are many variables to bear in mind – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Even so, we do try to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
