Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We have highly professional administrators whose only assignment is to make sure that your website performs precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on famous web applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are lots of variables to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our very best to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my site?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a way to access your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your website will remain completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
