Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your site(s) to our enterprise–level cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesired downtime. For this reason, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We have practiced administrators whose main task is to make sure that your site performs precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do try to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the name server records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
