Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost info and unnecessary downtime. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly skilled administrators whose sole task is to make certain that your web site functions precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular web apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of factors to think about – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our very best to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: We will require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
