Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does website migration include?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your website, or when you go through continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support staff to reply back to you, it may be a clever idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Site Secure Hostings, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our experienced technical team members will migrate your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got extensive experience with web site migration and are able to handle everything – from a traditional WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–driven site, to a very elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, because there are many factors, among them the physical 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’ll do our very best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the content is not large).
Q: What data will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the site that you would like us to move. We’ll also require a means to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: No. Your website will remain online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can get 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.
