Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will transfer your web site(s) to our first–rate cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost information and unnecessary downtime. This is why we will perform all that for you for free!We’ve got highly accomplished administrators whose main task is to make sure that your site functions precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are lots of factors to take into account – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do our best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yep. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you wish us to move. We will also need a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is done, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before notifying you that the migration is finished. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
