Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are many factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the content is not very large).
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t need any sensitive information. We’ll require, though, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you need to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your web site will continue to 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 will ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is update the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
