Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost info and unwanted downtime. This is the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly experienced administrators whose principal task is to make sure that your site performs exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are many factors to take into consideration – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. However, we do try to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We do not require any personal data. We will require, though, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the web site that you need to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Nah. Your website will remain online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
