Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our avant–garde cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost data and unnecessary network downtime. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have highly knowledgeable administrators whose only assignment is to make certain that your web site performs exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, because there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We don’t request any sensitive details. We will need, however, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the website that you want to move.
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nope. Your site will remain reachable online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
