Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your website, or if you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk team to get back to you, it might be a good idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Conchtown Premium Quality Professional Web Hosting, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our knowledgeable technical team representatives will move your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from a conventional WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to an extremely complex, custom–made app.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are many variables to take into account – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do try to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller–sized sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the web site that you’d like us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be visible online 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 is okay, all you will have to do is edit your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
