Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching 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 highly capable administrators whose sole job is to make certain that your site functions precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various facets that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t need any private details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the site that you wish to transfer.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will need to do is update the name server records associated with your domain name. Your site will be migrated over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
