Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will migrate your web site(s) to our enterprise–level cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost info and unwanted network downtime. That’s why we will do all that for you at no cost!We have highly trained administrators whose sole assignment is to make certain that your site performs exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based on famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are plenty of variables to consider – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized sites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be accessible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: No. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
