Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll move your web site(s) to our super–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that changing hosting providers can lead to lost data and undesired downtime. For this reason, we will do all that for you for free!We’ve got highly qualified administrators whose sole task is to make sure that your web site performs precisely as it did on your previous hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made websites, as well as websites that are based on well–known web apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, because there are many factors, including the size of the files and databases, the physical 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 very best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What info do you need?
A: We do not require any private data. We’ll need, though, the login information for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you want to migrate.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. When we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is modify the name server records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
