Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by YTM Domains and Hosting is completely free and consists of moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring just about any website. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of aspects to think about – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do try to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Nope. Your website will stay available online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided 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 like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
