Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your site, or if you face constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the support team to respond back to you, it may be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At WebFaddsHosting.com, we realize that this can be hard & time–consuming. Because of this, we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical team representatives will transfer your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience migrating websites and can handle everything – from a normal WordPress blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven web site, to a very complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, because there are plenty of factors, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What info do you need?
A: We don’t require any sensitive data. We’ll require, though, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we are done with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the NS records for your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.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.
