Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We will move your site(s) to our top–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost info and unwanted network downtime. This is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got trained administrators whose principal task is to ensure that your site performs precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time frame, because there are plenty of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to move your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: What data will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the web site that you would like us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before informing you that the migration is completed. Then we will tell you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site creation and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
