Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at Aperture Hosting Portal is entirely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your websites to be completely operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any sort of site. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with many custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be moved to your platform?
A: There are many aspects to take into consideration – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. That said, we do our best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: Yep. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to log into your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain accessible online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
