Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will migrate your site(s) to our enterprise–level cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesirable downtime. That’s why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly accomplished administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your website functions precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How long can it take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to take into account – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Still, we do our best to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized sites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the transfer is over, we’ll make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized before informing you that the migration is completed. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform on condition that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
