Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service available at PrincetonStar ServerOne is absolutely free of cost and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with multiple custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour window. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: Yeah. We’ll require the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We will also need a way to access your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records pertaining to your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
