Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our enterprise–grade cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired network downtime. Because of this, we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly trained administrators whose only task is to make sure that your website works exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known web applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various factors that you need to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you need to have?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with 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 site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform on condition that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
