Q: What does the website migration service include? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the demands of your website, or if you undergo continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client care team to respond to you, it might be a good idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At PC021 Hosting solutions, we understand that this can often be hard & time–consuming. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our trained technical staff will migrate your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience with web site migration and can take care of everything – from a conventional WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven website, to a highly complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time will it take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various elements that you need to take into consideration – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. After the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before notifying you that the migration is complete. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
