Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will move your website(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable downtime. This is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got knowledgeable administrators whose main responsibility is to make sure that your site works exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known scripts like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, since there are lots of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to move your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nope. Your website will continue to be fully operational during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
