Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your web site, or if you suffer from constant downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client care team to reply to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At HOST-TR - The best reliable hosting, we know that this can be hard & time–consuming. For this reason, we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly qualified technical staff will migrate your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience with web site migration and are able to handle anything – from a common WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ web site, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are a lot of factors, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: What details will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any private details. We will need, though, the login info for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your website will remain reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
