Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: The website migration service offered by Net Stargate is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain things that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We don’t collect any personal details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the web site that you wish to transfer.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your site will stay available online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your web 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: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
