Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your web site(s) to our next–generation cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got qualified administrators whose principal task is to ensure that your website performs exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based on well–known web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of variables to bear in mind – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do try to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log into your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: No. Your website will stay accessible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
