Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We will move your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost data and unnecessary downtime. This is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We have skilled administrators whose main task is to make certain that your website performs precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: There are lots of aspects to take into consideration – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. However, we do our best to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you would like us to move. We’ll also need a way to access your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary website building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
