Q: Why do I need to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can lead to lost data and unwanted network downtime. For this reason, we’ll do all that for you for free!We have professional administrators whose principal task is to make sure that your website works exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon well–known web apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are plenty of variables to think about – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do try to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you require?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nah. Your web site will stay completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
