Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our top–of–the–line cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost information and unwanted downtime. Because of this, we will perform all that for you for free!We’ve got skillful administrators whose only task is to make sure that your site functions exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are a lot of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We don’t need any sensitive details. We’ll require, though, the login information for your current web hosting account and the name of the site that you wish to move.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. Once the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not affected prior to telling you that the transfer is completed. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
