Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service available at BokWeb.com is absolutely free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be completely functional on our advanced 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 cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations ASAP. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several variables that you have to consider – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
