Q: Why do I need to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The website migration service offered by WebKarobar is absolutely free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the settings necessary for your websites to be completely operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving just about any website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built app with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be transferred to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several variables that you need to take into account – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before notifying you that the migration is done. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
