We’ll also edit all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are lots of variables to think about – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are transferred faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t need any sensitive information. We’ll need, however, the login info for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is change the name server resource records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
