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 will move your website(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost information and unwanted network downtime. For this reason, we’ll perform all that for you for free!We have seasoned administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your website functions exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on well–known web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are plenty of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: Yeah. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We will also require a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your website will continue to be accessible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
