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 charge (within a certain limit). We’ll move your site(s) to our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted network downtime. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!We’ve got highly experienced administrators whose main assignment is to ensure that your website functions precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of factors to keep in mind – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What information do you need to have?
A: We do not require any sensitive data. We’ll require, however, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is edit the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Basically, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.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.
