Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service provided by Bulls Host is totally free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various factors that you have to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in less than 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 web site?
A: We do not require any information that is personal. We will need, however, the login information for your current hosting account as well as the name of the website that you need to move.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: No. Your web site will continue to be completely operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your 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 migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
