Q: Why should I move my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: The website migration service on offer at LionHost is completely free of cost and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of website. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several facets that you need to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t need any private details. We’ll require, though, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the site that you would like to transfer.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the name server records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yep. We support all common Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website building and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
