Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your site, or if you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the tech support staff to get back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Web Host Logic, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we will perform all that for you for free!Our expert technical team representatives will move your site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from a customary WordPress weblog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time frame, because there are plenty of factors, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our best to transfer your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is important to me. What data do you need to have?
A: Yeah. We’ll require the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We’ll also need a means to log in to your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. After the migration is completed, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to informing you that the migration is finished. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
