Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration 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 high–end cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can result in lost data and unnecessary network downtime. That is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!We have highly capable administrators whose main assignment is to ensure that your website works exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to bear in mind – the total amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What information do you require?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We’ll also need a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your site will stay completely operational during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
