Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: The website migration service on offer at ENSR.com is completely free of charge and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also update all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely 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 behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time can it take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several variables that you need to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a means to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server records associated with your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
