Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your web site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost info and unnecessary network downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got qualified administrators whose sole job is to make sure that your site functions exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based on famous web applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are lots of aspects to consider – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our best to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need to have?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is change the name server resource records for your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
