Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your site(s) to our avant–garde cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost information and unnecessary network downtime. For this reason, we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got qualified administrators whose principal responsibility is to make sure that your website works precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of variables to keep in mind – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable websites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you require?
A: Yep. We will require the name of the web site that you’d like us to migrate. We will also need a way to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your site will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is change the name server records associated with your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
