Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will move your web site(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable network downtime. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly capable administrators whose main responsibility is to ensure that your web site functions exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different factors that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the website that you wish us to move. We’ll also need a way to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. After the transfer is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before informing you that the migration is finished. After that, we will instruct you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
