Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service provided by Patrol Bureau is totally free of cost and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, because there are lots of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: Yeah. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you would like us to transfer. We will also need a way to log in to your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is modify the name server records associated with your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
