Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll transfer your website(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost info and undesirable downtime. This is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We have highly trained administrators whose chief task is to make certain that your site functions precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon famous web apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several aspects that you need to take into consideration – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not need any private data. We will need, however, the login information for your current hosting account and the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. When we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
