Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our enterprise–level cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired network downtime. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got highly experienced administrators whose primary task is to make certain that your web site performs precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on popular web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What information do you require?
A: We don’t gather any information that is sensitive. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you need to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before informing you that the migration is over. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
