Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will move your website(s) to our high–performance cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can result in lost info and unnecessary downtime. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have seasoned administrators whose chief task is to make sure that your website functions precisely as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon well–known scripts such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: We strive to perform all web site migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various elements that you have to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: We will need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all common Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site building and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
