Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my web site be secure?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We will move your web site(s) to our ultramodern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost information and undesired network downtime. That’s why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly qualified administrators whose principal job is to ensure that your site functions exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based on well–known web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: There are many variables to take into consideration – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the migration is finished, we will make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to informing you that the transfer is over. After that, we’ll tell you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
