Q: Why do I need to transfer my website? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted downtime. This is why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got knowledgeable administrators whose only assignment is to make sure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular web applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of variables to take into consideration – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do try to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the website that you would like us to move. We’ll also require a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your site will stay completely operational during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
