Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can lead to lost information and unwanted downtime. This is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!We have knowledgeable administrators whose principal job is to ensure that your web site performs exactly as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known web applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are plenty of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to move your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We do not request any personal info. We’ll need, though, the login info for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: No. Your web site will stay available online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
