Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our next–generation cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable network downtime. This is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly knowledgeable administrators whose sole task is to ensure that your website performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous web apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Still, we do our best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour window. Less sizeable web sites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We do not request any private data. We will require, however, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is edit the NS records pertaining to your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
