Q: How long will it take for my website to be migrated over to yourselves?
A: While we can not be exact on the exact time-frame since there are a lot of variables such as how large the web files and databases are, where is the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website, the current work load of our Website Migration Department we will do our best to migrate your site within a 48h timeframe and in some cases 24h (if the content is not large).
Q: What information will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login details for the access point (control panel) of your old hosting provider and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I am giving you access to my current hosting provider which is sensitive information, how can I be sure that you are not going to misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we migrate your website the website will be available on both your hosting account with us and your old hosting provider. Once the migration is completed we will make sure everything is working properly and that all data integrity is not compromised before informing you the the migration is over. After that we will instruct you how to switch the domain name over to your hosting account with us by changing the DNS servers for the domain name that displays your website.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know 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 not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers do you migrate from ?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any hosting platform which is Linux based as long as we can get access to the control panel and there is FTP access available.
The only websites we can not transfer are mainly the ones based on a closed source online website building software such as: Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site but not limited to those only.
