Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service provided by Star Game Club is completely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of site. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various aspects that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the website that you want us to move. We’ll also require a way to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the migration is completed, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is finished. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform on condition that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
