Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of cost (within a certain limit). We will transfer your site(s) to our enterprise–class cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got proficient administrators whose sole job is to make certain that your website functions exactly as it did on your old hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based on popular apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various variables that you need to take into consideration – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any private info. We’ll need, however, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the site that you need to transfer.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
