Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We’ll move your website(s) to our top–of–the–line cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost information and undesirable network downtime. For this reason, we’ll perform all that for you for free!We’ve got highly skilled administrators whose principal task is to ensure that your site works precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based on well–known scripts like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the web site that you want us to transfer. We will also need a way to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the migration is finished, we’ll make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to notifying you that the transfer is complete. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
