Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will migrate your web site(s) to our top–tier cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired network downtime. Because of this, we’ll do all that for you for free!We have highly skilled administrators whose principal responsibility is to make sure that your web site works precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on well–known scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to take into account – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What info do you need to have?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. After the migration is over, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before telling you that the transfer is completed. Then we will instruct you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also do not support proprietary site creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
