Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at ManifestHosting.com is entirely free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any type of website. 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 famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: There are lots of variables to think about – the total amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Still, we do try to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not gather any private data. We will need, however, the login information for your present hosting account and the name of the website that you wish to transfer.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your site will stay accessible online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
