Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will move your web site(s) to our top–of–the–line cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted downtime. For this reason, we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly professional administrators whose main task is to make sure that your web site functions exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon famous scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you need to take into consideration – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the website that you want us to move. We’ll also require a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is completed, we will make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the transfer is over. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
