Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your website, or if you undergo continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk staff to reply back to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Netspeed Web Hosting, we realize that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That’s why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our trained technical staff will transfer your web site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a standard WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are many aspects to think about – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That said, we do our best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my site?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the web site that you would like us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: No. Your website will stay available online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
