Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping web hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired downtime. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got experienced administrators whose only task is to ensure that your web site functions exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on famous applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are a lot of factors, including the 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 will try our very best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What data do you require?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a way to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your site will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Generally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
