Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We will migrate your site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired network downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got practiced administrators whose principal responsibility is to make sure that your site works exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are experts in migrating custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on famous web apps like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different factors that you need to take into account – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We don’t gather any personal data. We will require, however, the login info for your present hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. After the migration is done, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before telling you that the transfer is done. Then we will explain to you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. In essence, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
