Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your site(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired downtime. That is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We have competent administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your website performs precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon well–known web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several facets that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We don’t gather any personal info. We’ll require, however, the login info for your current web hosting account along with the name of the site that you’d like to move.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we are done with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server resource records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
