Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your website, or if you suffer from continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client care staff to reply to you, it may be a clever idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Netpreneur Host, we know that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That’s why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our seasoned technical staff members will migrate your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have broad experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from a conventional WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be moved to your platform?
A: There are lots of variables to bear in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller web sites are transferred faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We do not request any information that is private. We’ll require, however, the login information for your old web hosting account and the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS resource records for your domain. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
