Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (to a certain extent). We will transfer your site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesirable downtime. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We have accomplished administrators whose primary task is to ensure that your web site works exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on popular apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different facets that you have to take into account – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is completed, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to informing you that the migration is complete. Then we will tell you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform so long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
