Q: What precisely does website 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 transfer your site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can result in lost info and unnecessary network downtime. Because of this, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have accomplished administrators whose primary task is to make certain that your web site works precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. However, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you need to take into account – the actual 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 websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We don’t need any information that is personal. We will require, however, the login info for your current web hosting account along with the name of the site that you want to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: No. Your web site will stay available online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
