Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your website(s) to our avant–garde cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost data and unwanted network downtime. That is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly knowledgeable administrators whose main task is to ensure that your site works exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular web apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different facets that you need to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We’ll require the name of the site that you would like us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is change the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
