Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service on offer at Boscom Solutions Inc Hosting is totally free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any website. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, because there are plenty of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to move your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the website content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What details do you need to have?
A: We will need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to informing you that the migration is complete. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
