Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be safe?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the demands of your site, or if you undergo continual network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client support staff to get back to you, it might be a good idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At WalletFriendlyHost, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly capable technical staff reps will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–based web site, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain variables that you have to consider – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What details do you require?
A: We do not need any personal info. We will need, though, the login information for your old web hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we are through with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our system and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server resource records pertaining to your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Basically, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
