Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your website, or when you experience continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service staff to reply to you, it may be smart to swap your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Supreme Web Servers, we understand that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our capable technical team representatives will move your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from a common WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–driven website, to a very complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different facets that you need to take into account – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my website?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the site that you would like us to move. We will also need a means to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. After the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before informing you that the migration is complete. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
