Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your website(s) to our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired network downtime. This is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have skilled administrators whose principal responsibility is to make sure that your website performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on popular web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain elements that you have to take into account – the actual size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What info do you need?
A: We will need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records for your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
