Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired network downtime. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have competent administrators whose only responsibility is to make certain that your web site works precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are lots of aspects to consider – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are migrated faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is finished, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised prior to telling you that the transfer is completed. Then we will tell you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
