Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Paklive Hosting is absolutely free and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of website. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, because there are plenty of variables, including the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my website?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is modify the name server records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary website building and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
