Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service on offer at Orihost.com is entirely free of charge and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any type of website. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time interval, since there are a lot of factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to transfer your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We do not request any private information. We’ll need, though, the login info for your old web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you want to migrate.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your site will continue to be completely operational during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
