Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your site(s) to our first–rate cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that changing web hosting providers can result in lost information and undesired network downtime. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!We have highly accomplished administrators whose principal task is to make sure that your site performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon famous applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: There are many aspects to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do our best to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What info do you need?
A: We don’t request any sensitive info. We will require, though, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is change the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary website creation and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
