Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by FlashBuilder is entirely free of cost and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of site. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built app with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are a lot of factors, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to migrate your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t request any private data. We will require, though, the login information for your current web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you want to transfer.
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your website will stay reachable online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you 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’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary site creation and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
