Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our first–rate cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost data and unwanted downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got experienced administrators whose chief assignment is to ensure that your website performs exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on famous applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is change the name server records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
