Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (within a certain limit). We’ll migrate your website(s) to our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable downtime. This is why we will do all that for you for free!We have seasoned administrators whose primary assignment is to make certain that your site performs precisely as it did on your former hosting platform. The administrators are experts in transferring custom–made web sites, as well as web sites that are based on popular applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several factors that you have to take into consideration – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What information do you need?
A: We don’t gather any information that is private. We will need, though, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the site that you want to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting 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 records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
