Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be safe?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the necessities of your web site, or when you face continuous network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the tech support team to respond to you, it may be smart to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Web Host73, we are aware that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly skilled technical team representatives will migrate your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got extensive experience with website migration and are able to take care of anything – from a conventional WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–powered web site, to an extremely complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to consider – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller sites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any private data. We’ll require, though, the login information for your old hosting account and the name of the site that you would like to transfer.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the NS resource records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
