Q: What exactly does web site 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 will move your website(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost info and unnecessary network downtime. That’s the reason why we will perform all that for you for free!We have capable administrators whose main assignment is to make certain that your site performs exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long can it take?
A: There are many variables to take into consideration – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the 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 content associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. When we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is change the name server records for your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
