Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll move your website(s) to our top–tier cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesired network downtime. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have highly skilled administrators whose only task is to make certain that your site works precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on popular web applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, since there are lots of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our best to migrate your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not large).
Q: My privacy is important to me. What data do you require?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the web site that you’d like us to transfer. We will also need a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. Once the migration is completed, we will make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to informing you that the migration is completed. Then we’ll explain to you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to change your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Basically, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
