Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We will transfer your web site(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost info and unwanted network downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got seasoned administrators whose only task is to ensure that your web site works precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on popular apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time can it take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several things that you need to take into account – the actual size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t gather any sensitive info. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you want to migrate.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will need to do is update the name server records pertaining to your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
