Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your website, or if you experience continuous downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client support staff to reply back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At UrlOn.com, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly experienced technical staff reps will migrate your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience with web site migration and can handle anything – from a regular WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How much time will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you need to have?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the web site that you’d like us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS records corresponding to your domain name. Your web site will be migrated to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
