Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will move your site(s) to our top–of–the–line cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost data and unwanted downtime. For this reason, we’ll perform all that for you for free!We’ve got capable administrators whose sole responsibility is to make sure that your site functions precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are lots of aspects to consider – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do try to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We don’t collect any personal information. We’ll need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you wish to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. Once the transfer is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is completed. After that, we’ll tell you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
