Q: Why do I have to transfer my site? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our super–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired network downtime. This is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have capable administrators whose sole task is to make certain that your site functions exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various variables that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive details. We will require, though, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the name server resource records for your domain name. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
