Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will migrate your site(s) to our top–of–the–line cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired network downtime. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got trained administrators whose principal task is to make certain that your web site performs precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular web apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any information that is private. We’ll require, however, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the web site that you would like to migrate.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records for your domain. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
