Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be safe?
A: The web site migration service available at Create 123 Free Website Online is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your website files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any web site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, since there are plenty of factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to migrate your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not large).
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not gather any sensitive details. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account along with the name of the website that you want to migrate.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Basically, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
