Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will transfer your site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesirable downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got highly experienced administrators whose primary responsibility is to make sure that your website works exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several aspects that you need to take into consideration – 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–sized sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will require the name of the web site that you want us to transfer. We will also need a means to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records for your domain. Your website will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site building and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
