Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesirable downtime. This is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We have highly capable administrators whose main task is to make sure that your website performs precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon well–known web applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you need to take into consideration – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you need?
A: We will require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. After the migration is over, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before telling you that the migration is done. After that, we will tell you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base 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 current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
