Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your web site, or when you suffer from continuous network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the tech support staff to respond back to you, it might be a clever idea to swap your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Hostingjl, we understand that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will perform all that for you for free!Our highly trained technical staff reps will transfer your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating websites and are able to take care of everything – from a conventional WordPress blog or Joomla™–based website, to an extremely complex, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several elements that you need to take into account – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yep. We will need the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the transfer is completed, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before notifying you that the transfer is over. After that, we will tell you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can access the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
