Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your website(s) to our super–modern cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost info and undesired downtime. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have skilled administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your website functions exactly as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular web apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to bear in mind – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do our very best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We will need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. 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 site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we will make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before informing you that the migration is done. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary site building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
