Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your web site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost data and unnecessary network downtime. This is the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly experienced administrators whose main task is to make certain that your web site performs precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–built web sites, as well as web sites that are based upon famous web applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are many aspects to keep in mind – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Still, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable websites are transferred much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What details do you need?
A: We don’t require any personal info. We will need, however, the login information for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to move.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is update the NS resource records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
