Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your site(s) to our ultramodern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and unnecessary network downtime. That’s why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have highly experienced administrators whose sole task is to ensure that your web site functions exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, because there are lots of variables, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to migrate your web site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not large).
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: No. Your website will remain visible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is edit your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: No. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary website building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
