Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We’ll move your web site(s) to our leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost info and unnecessary downtime. This is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have highly experienced administrators whose sole assignment is to ensure that your website functions exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on famous scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several facets that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the website that you want us to move. We’ll also need a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: No. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
