Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (to a certain extent). We will transfer your site(s) to our top–tier cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost information and unwanted network downtime. For this reason, we will do all that for you at no cost!We have experienced administrators whose chief task is to make sure that your web site functions exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to consider – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
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 former hosting provider. Once the migration is done, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is finished. Then we’ll tell you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
