Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your web site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired network downtime. This is the reason why we will do all that for you for free!We’ve got practiced administrators whose main job is to ensure that your site works precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of variables to consider – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. However, we do try to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller web sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you require?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. When the migration is complete, we will make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized before notifying you that the migration is completed. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary website building and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
