Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: The website migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will migrate your site(s) to our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost info and undesirable network downtime. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We have qualified administrators whose sole responsibility is to make sure that your site works precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon well–known apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time frame, because there are many factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What info do you need to have?
A: We don’t need any information that is personal. We’ll need, however, the login info for your present hosting account along with the name of the site that you need to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. After the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is done. Then we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
