Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will transfer your site(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost information and unwanted downtime. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!We’ve got highly competent administrators whose primary assignment is to make certain that your website functions precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to keep in mind – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What info do you require?
A: We don’t need any personal details. We will require, though, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the website that you wish to migrate.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the transfer is completed, we will make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is over. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform provided that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
