Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We will transfer your website(s) to our super–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired downtime. That’s why we will do all that for you at no cost!We have highly skilled administrators whose main task is to make sure that your site functions exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon well–known web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, since there are many factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: What info will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We will also require a means to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Nope. Your web site will stay accessible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
