Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our leading–edge cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost information and unnecessary network downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly accomplished administrators whose principal task is to ensure that your website performs exactly as it did on your previous hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several elements that you have to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We do not require any sensitive data. We’ll need, however, the login info for your present hosting account and the name of the website that you wish to transfer.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are through with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server resource records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
