Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service that our company is offering is free (to a certain extent). We will move your site(s) to our top–notch cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything.

That is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got highly accomplished administrators whose chief task is to make sure that your site performs precisely as it did on your previous web hosting platform. Our administrators are well–versed in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon well–known applications like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, since there are a lot of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to move your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We do not need any personal data. We’ll require, however, the login information for your old hosting account along with the name of the site 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 offline?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. As soon as the migration is finished, we will ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before informing you that the migration is finished. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
