Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does web site migration include?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer answer the demands of your website, or if you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the tech support staff to reply back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Web Server, we understand that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly competent technical staff members will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got extensive experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–based website, to a highly elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. Still, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different factors that you have to take into account – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need?
A: We do not need any private details. We will need, however, the login info for your current web hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will continue to be fully operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
