Q: Why should I transfer my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your website(s) to our leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost information and unwanted network downtime. For this reason, we will perform all that for you for free!We have skillful administrators whose chief responsibility is to make sure that your website functions precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are a lot of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to move your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the website that you want us to move. We will also require a way to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary web site building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
