Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesirable network downtime. That is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got qualified administrators whose sole job is to make sure that your website functions precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, since there are many factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not large).
Q: What data will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site building and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
