Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired downtime. That is the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly capable administrators whose primary task is to ensure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on famous applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to consider – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What info do you require?
A: We don’t require any sensitive info. We’ll need, however, the login info for your old web hosting account along with the name of the site that you need to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. When the migration is done, we’ll make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before telling you that the migration is completed. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not 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 content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
