Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your website(s) to our ultramodern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can result in lost information and undesirable downtime. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have qualified administrators whose chief assignment is to ensure that your site works exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, since there are many variables, including the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your web site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: Yes. We’ll require the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we’ll make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before informing you that the migration is complete. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform given that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
