Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We will transfer your web site(s) to our super–modern cloud hosting platform without you needing to do anything. We know from personal experience that switching web hosting providers can result in lost data and undesired downtime. This is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got knowledgeable administrators whose primary task is to make certain that your web site performs exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular web applications such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are plenty of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the website content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What data do you require?
A: We will require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we have completed the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
