Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your site(s) to our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired network downtime. For this reason, we will perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got practiced administrators whose primary job is to ensure that your site functions precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain elements that you have to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We do not require any private data. We’ll require, though, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the web site that you need to move.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we will make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to informing you that the transfer is done. Then we will instruct you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
