Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our topflight cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted network downtime. That is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We have knowledgeable administrators whose only task is to ensure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on well–known scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to take into account – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do try to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We will need to have the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the name server records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
