Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your web site, or if you face frequent downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk team to get back to you, it may be a good idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At hostingdad, we realize that this can often be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our practiced technical staff reps will transfer your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with web site migration and are able to take care of anything – from a common WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–powered web site, to an extremely complex, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, because 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 present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to migrate your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need to have?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will stay visible online during the migration. 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’s fine, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
