Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does web site migration include?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your website, or if you suffer from constant downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer support team to respond to you, it may be a good idea to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Hosting Priced Right, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our proficient technical team will transfer your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from a regular WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a highly complex, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: There are a lot of factors to take into account – the overall number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Even so, we do our best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time period. Smaller websites are transferred faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We will require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Nah. Your website will continue to be available online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
