Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your website(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost info and undesired downtime. This is why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly proficient administrators whose chief job is to ensure that your site functions precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon famous web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several facets that you need to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t request any sensitive info. We’ll require, however, the login info for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you would like to transfer.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the migration is over, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before informing you that the transfer is complete. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as 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 applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
