Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be safe?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your site, or if you undergo constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client support team to respond to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At ConstantWebs Hosting, we understand that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our highly qualified technical staff reps will transfer your website content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a regular WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based site, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several aspects that you need to take into account – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: No. Your website will remain accessible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
