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 (to a certain extent). We will transfer your web site(s) to our next–generation cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost information and unwanted downtime. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!We have experienced administrators whose principal responsibility is to make sure that your website functions exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous web applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to consider – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Less sizeable sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t require any information that is sensitive. We will require, however, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the website that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records for your domain. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
