Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my website be secure?
A: The website migration service provided by Aasa Studio web hosting is totally free of cost and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, since there are many factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: Yeah. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you want us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
