Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the demands of your web site, or if you go through continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client care team to respond back to you, it may be a good idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Website-Email.com, we are aware that this can often be hard and time–consuming. This is why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our expert technical team will migrate your web site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from a traditional WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–based site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time can it take?
A: There are lots of aspects to bear in mind – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We’ll also need a means to access your present hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the migration is finished, we will make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before notifying you that the migration is complete. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
