Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your website, or if you go through constant downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service team to reply to you, it may be a smart idea to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Web Hosting Experts, we understand that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our qualified technical staff reps will move your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got broad experience migrating web sites and are able to handle anything – from a normal WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to think about – the total amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour window. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We don’t require any sensitive information. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account and the name of the site that you need to transfer.
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: No. Your site will remain completely operational during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your 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 platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
