Q: Why should I move my website? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We’ll move your web site(s) to our top–tier cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly skilled administrators whose main task is to make sure that your web site functions precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, since there are a lot of variables, including the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to transfer your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We will also require a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the migration is finished, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before informing you that the transfer is complete. After that, we will instruct you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
