Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your web site(s) to our leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost data and unnecessary downtime. This is why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got practiced administrators whose chief task is to make certain that your website functions precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on famous apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long will it take?
A: There are many factors to take into account – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour window. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are through with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is edit the name server resource records for your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yep. We support all common Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site creation and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
