Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your web site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesirable downtime. That is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!We’ve got experienced administrators whose main task is to make sure that your web site functions precisely 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 on famous apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. However, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various aspects that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We will require the name of the web site that you would like us to migrate. We will also require a way to access your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
