Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service provided by ROWorld is absolutely free of charge and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of aspects to keep in mind – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the transfer is finished, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is over. Then we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
