Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will transfer your web site(s) to our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted downtime. For this reason, we’ll perform all that for you for free!We have qualified administrators whose principal job is to make sure that your website functions precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon well–known web applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of variables to take into consideration – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable websites are transferred much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We do not need any personal data. We’ll require, though, the login info for your old hosting account and the name of the website that you wish to move.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your website will stay completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can access the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
