Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your website(s) to our topflight cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost information and undesired network downtime. Because of this, we will do all that for you for free!We have experienced administrators whose chief assignment is to make certain that your website performs exactly as it did on your former hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based upon popular scripts such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations ASAP. Even so, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We will need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to move. We will also need a means to access your old hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. After we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is modify the name server records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform provided that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
