Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service available at Schuh's Services Web Hosting Services is totally free and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different elements that you have to take into consideration – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
