Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will migrate your web site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesirable downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We have highly skilled administrators whose sole task is to ensure that your site performs precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on famous apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be moved to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different variables that you have to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. Once the transfer is complete, we’ll make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to notifying you that the migration is completed. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
