Q: Why do I have to move my website? What does website migration include?
A: The website migration service provided by Toxist is totally free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully functional on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We do not need any personal information. We’ll require, however, the login information for your present web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you would like to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on 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 previous hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform so long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
