Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by Lime Server is entirely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be moved to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different variables that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you need to have?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you would like us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. Once the transfer is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to notifying you that the transfer is complete. Then we will tell you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
