We know from personal experience that switching hosting providers can lead to lost info and undesirable downtime. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got proficient administrators whose chief task is to ensure that your website functions exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known apps such as Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to move your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the website that you’d like us to transfer. We will also need a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will remain reachable online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
