Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your site, or if you experience regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to get back to you, it may be smart to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At The Web Hosting Team, we are aware that this can be hard & time–consuming. That is why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly qualified technical staff members will move your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got lots of experience with web site migration and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different aspects that you need to take into account – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We don’t require any private details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your current hosting account and the name of the site that you need to move.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will stay reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain 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 site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
