Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We will transfer your web site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost information and unwanted downtime. That is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly experienced administrators whose sole task is to make certain that your website works precisely as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based on well–known scripts like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long will it take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to bear in mind – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Still, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my website?
A: Yep. We will need the name of the web site that you’d like us to migrate. We will also need a means to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is update the NS records for your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
