Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my website be safe?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We’ll transfer your website(s) to our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing hosting providers can result in lost data and unnecessary downtime. This is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We have highly competent administrators whose main task is to make certain that your website works exactly as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular web applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We will need the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the migration is done, we will make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before telling you that the migration is finished. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
