Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your site(s) to our first–rate cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired downtime. This is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!We have experienced administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your website works precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on famous scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different variables that you need to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you want us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is update the name server records associated with your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
