Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll transfer your site(s) to our first–class cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing web hosting providers can lead to lost info and unnecessary downtime. That is the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!We’ve got accomplished administrators whose only task is to make sure that your website performs precisely as it did on your former web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon famous applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time window, since there are a lot of factors, among them the size of the web files and databases, the 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 do our very best to move your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We do not gather any private details. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account along with the name of the site that you would like to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the migration is done, we’ll ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized before notifying you that the transfer is complete. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site creation and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
