Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your web site, or when you experience frequent downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk staff to respond to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At SuccessWebSolutions.com, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our practiced technical staff representatives will transfer your web site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience with web site migration and are able to handle everything – from a common WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–powered web site, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, because there are many factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We do not require any information that is sensitive. We will need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account along with the name of the site that you need to migrate.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we are through with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
