Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We will migrate your web site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesirable network downtime. That’s why we will do all that for you at no cost!We have seasoned administrators whose chief assignment is to make sure that your site functions precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on well–known applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to bear in mind – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do try to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized sites are migrated faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the migration is over, we will make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before informing you that the transfer is done. Then we will tell you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
