Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your site(s) to our leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost info and undesired network downtime. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly competent administrators whose only task is to make sure that your web site functions precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on well–known web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are a lot of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the content is not very large).
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your web site will stay fully operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
