Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will transfer your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesirable downtime. That is why we will do all that for you for free!We’ve got highly qualified administrators whose only task is to make certain that your web site functions exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular web applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, since there are a lot of variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to transfer your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: What data will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is update the NS records pertaining to your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform given that we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
