Q: What exactly does web site migration mean 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 will move your web site(s) to our top–tier cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost info and unnecessary downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!We’ve got highly knowledgeable administrators whose principal job is to make certain that your website works exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon well–known web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the total amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable web sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We will also need a way to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is complete, we will make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is over. Then we’ll tell you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
