Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired network downtime. This is why we’ll do all that for you for free!We have highly capable administrators whose chief task is to make sure that your site works exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on well–known web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several elements that you need to take into account – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We will require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we are done with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is update the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
