Q: What precisely does website migration imply 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 will transfer your website(s) to our enterprise–level cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost information and undesirable network downtime. Because of this, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have professional administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your site functions exactly 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 popular web applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to take into account – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: Yeah. We’ll require the name of the web site that you wish us to migrate. We will also need a means to log in to your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. As soon as the migration is completed, we will ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before informing you that the transfer is over. After that, we will tell you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site creation and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
