Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, since there are plenty of factors, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your web site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you require?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: No. Your site will stay fully operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
