Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll move your web site(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost info and unwanted network downtime. That is the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got practiced administrators whose principal job is to ensure 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 on well–known web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are lots of factors to keep in mind – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We don’t need any private details. We will need, however, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the site that you want to move.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records for your domain name. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform as long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
