Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your website(s) to our next–generation 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 network downtime. This is why we will perform all that for you for free!We have professional administrators whose only assignment is to ensure that your site performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on well–known web apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain variables that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any sensitive data. We will require, though, the login information for your current web hosting account along with the name of the website that you’d like to migrate.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. After we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
