Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be safe?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your website, or when you go through continual network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk team to respond to you, it may be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At AdTrafficHost, we are aware that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we will perform all that for you for free!Our highly competent technical team members will move your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience with web site migration and can handle anything – from a standard WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven website, to a very complex, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be moved to your platform?
A: There are a lot of aspects to take into consideration – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Even so, we do our best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We will require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will stay accessible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform so long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
