Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service offered by AIDA Host is entirely free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations ASAP. However, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you have to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We don’t collect any private details. We’ll require, though, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you wish to migrate.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records pertaining to your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
