Q: Why do I have to move my website? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service offered by StreamLineHost is totally free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings needed for your websites to be completely operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any kind of website. With years of experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are many variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my site?
A: We will require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your web site will continue to be accessible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
