Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost info and unwanted downtime. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly knowledgeable administrators whose only responsibility is to ensure that your website functions exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon well–known apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our very best to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We do not collect any sensitive info. We will require, however, the login information for your old web hosting account and the name of the web site that you would like to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nah. Your web site will continue to be reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform on condition that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
