Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost information and unnecessary downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got knowledgeable administrators whose only assignment is to ensure that your site works precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on popular apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to take into consideration – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the website that you wish us to transfer. We’ll also need a way to log in to your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. After the migration is done, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before notifying you that the migration is completed. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary website creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
