Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted network downtime. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have highly qualified administrators whose main task is to ensure that your site functions exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to take into account – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our best to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is modify the NS records for your domain. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
