Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service available at Lokihost is entirely free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of web site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several factors that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to move. We will also require a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before notifying you that the migration is complete. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
