Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your web site(s) to our top–tier cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesired downtime. This is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have highly experienced administrators whose primary task is to make sure that your website works precisely as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular scripts like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: There are a lot of aspects to think about – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: We do not collect any private information. We will require, though, the login info for your current web hosting account along with the name of the site that you want to move.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is change the name server resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
