Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got highly skilled administrators whose principal task is to make sure that your site works precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several factors that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We do not request any sensitive details. We will need, however, the login information for your current web hosting account along with the name of the site that you want to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the migration is done, we will ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the transfer is over. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Basically, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
