Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your site(s) to our ultramodern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost info and undesirable network downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got skillful administrators whose chief responsibility is to ensure that your web site works precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known web applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: Yup. We will require the name of the web site that you want us to move. We’ll also need a way to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we transfer your website, 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 finished, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to notifying you that the transfer is finished. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
