Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Forte Cheap Host is entirely free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be completely functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of website. With years of experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are many variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What info do you require?
A: We will require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your web site will continue to be visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
