Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll move your web site(s) to our leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost information and unnecessary network downtime. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you for free!We have highly qualified administrators whose sole job is to ensure that your web site performs precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time can it take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain variables that you have to consider – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. Once the transfer is complete, we will make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before telling you that the migration is done. Then we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
