Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable downtime. Because of this, we will do all that for you for free!We’ve got knowledgeable administrators whose sole task is to make certain that your website performs precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon well–known applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are lots of factors to bear in mind – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We do not gather any information that is personal. We will need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the site that you wish to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the transfer is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before telling you that the migration is finished. After that, we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
