Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: The website migration service available at Ks-cubed Hosting is completely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are many factors to take into account – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Even so, we do try to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller web sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be available online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
