Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (to a certain extent). We’ll move your website(s) to our topflight cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired network downtime. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly accomplished administrators whose chief task is to make sure that your website functions precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on popular web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are lots of variables to bear in mind – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour time period. Smaller websites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my website?
A: Yes. We will need the name of the website that you would like us to migrate. We will also need a way to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is finished, we will make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before informing you that the migration is completed. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
