Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer meet the needs of your web site, or if you experience continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the technical support staff to respond to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Budget Hosting 4 U, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming.

Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: There are plenty of variables to think about – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller web sites are transferred faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the migration is done, we will make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before informing you that the transfer is completed. Then we will explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.

A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
