Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted network downtime. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got knowledgeable administrators whose chief responsibility is to ensure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular web apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Even so, we do try to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller websites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We do not request any private info. We will need, though, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the web site that you want to transfer.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform on condition that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
