Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
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 leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted downtime. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!We have highly accomplished administrators whose main task is to make sure that your web site functions precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based on well–known apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. Still, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller websites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS records for your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
