Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service offered by Langitan Hosting is absolutely free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your present provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring just about any web site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, since there are plenty 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 present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to migrate your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What info do you need?
A: We do not require any sensitive information. We’ll require, however, the login information for your current hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to move.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is complete, we will make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the migration is completed. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform on condition that we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
