Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll transfer your site(s) to our high–performance cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesirable network downtime. This is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got accomplished administrators whose principal assignment is to ensure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various factors that you need to take into account – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What information do you need to have?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the web site that you’d like us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is change the NS records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site building and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
