Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your web site, or when you suffer from constant network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client support team to respond to you, it might be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At ADI Web Hosting, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is the reason why we will do all that for you for free!Our knowledgeable technical team representatives will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience with web site migration and are able to take care of everything – from a conventional WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various factors that you have to consider – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We don’t request any private data. We will require, however, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the site that you need to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
