Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your website(s) to our high–performance cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost data and unwanted network downtime. That’s why we will do all that for you for free!We’ve got highly qualified administrators whose chief assignment is to make certain that your web site functions exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain factors that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We will need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web 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: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
