Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your web site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired downtime. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly knowledgeable administrators whose sole job is to make sure that your web site functions precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on famous applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my site?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also require a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is over, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before informing you that the transfer is over. After that, we will instruct you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
