Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll move your website(s) to our enterprise–level cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost information and unnecessary network downtime. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got experienced administrators whose chief task is to make sure that your site functions precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various factors that you need to consider – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: Yep. We will need the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also require a means to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. As soon as the migration is completed, we will make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized before notifying you that the transfer is completed. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
