Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost information and undesired network downtime. That’s why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly competent administrators whose main job is to make sure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon popular applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various aspects that you have to take into account – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We don’t collect any personal info. We will need, however, the login information for your present hosting account along with the name of the website 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 site?
A: Nope. Your site will continue to be visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for 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 have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
