Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service offered by KamNET Web Hosting is entirely free and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings required for your sites to be fully operational on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our 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 moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time can it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise ETA, since there are plenty of variables, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to transfer your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What data do you require?
A: We don’t require any sensitive details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the migration is finished. Then we will instruct you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
