Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your web site(s) to our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost info and unwanted downtime. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have trained administrators whose primary task is to ensure that your web site works precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based on famous scripts like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time can it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time interval, because there are lots of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we have finished the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the NS records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
