Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration include?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your web site(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can result in lost information and undesired network downtime. That’s the reason why we will perform all that for you for free!We’ve got practiced administrators whose principal task is to make sure that your website performs precisely as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: We try to accomplish all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various things that you need to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the website that you would like us to move. We will also need a means to access your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the name server records associated with your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
