Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We’ll move your website(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost information and unnecessary network downtime. That is why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We have proficient administrators whose chief task is to ensure that your web site works precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular web applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations ASAP. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different things that you need to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a means to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your site will continue to be completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
