Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various things that you have to take into account – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yep. We’ll need the name of the website that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also need a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will continue to be completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
