Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesirable downtime. This is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We have trained administrators whose sole task is to ensure that your site functions precisely as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different things that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a way to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. After the transfer is finished, we will make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before telling you that the transfer is done. After that, we will instruct you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform given that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
