Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service offered by Bliss Hosting is absolutely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of factors to keep in mind – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Even so, we do try to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable websites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What details do you need?
A: Yeah. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you want us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. After we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Basically, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
