Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your site(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost info and unnecessary downtime. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have accomplished administrators whose primary task is to make sure that your website performs exactly as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are many factors to think about – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the name server resource records for your domain name. Your web site will be migrated over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site building and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
