Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service available at Lim Clouds is completely free and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any website. With years of experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of variables to keep in mind – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you wish us to move. We’ll also require a way to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform given that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
