Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can lead to lost data and unnecessary network downtime. That’s why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We have highly qualified administrators whose sole job is to make certain that your web site performs precisely as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on popular apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of factors to bear in mind – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any personal info. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present web hosting account along with the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to telling you that the migration is over. After that, we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
