Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost info and undesired downtime. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got skillful administrators whose sole task is to ensure that your site performs precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous web applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various aspects that you have to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What data do you require?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you want us to transfer. We’ll also need a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site 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 old hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to informing you that the transfer is done. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
