Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your web site, or if you undergo continual network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer service staff to get back to you, it might be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Web Hosting Indy, we realize that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly competent technical staff members will migrate your site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience migrating web sites and are able to handle everything – from a traditional WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a highly complex, custom–made app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: There are many aspects to bear in mind – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nevertheless, we do try to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller web sites are migrated faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What information do you need?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
