Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the needs of your website, or if you suffer from continuous network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support team to get back to you, it may be smart to change your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Ultimate Internet Services, we understand that this can be difficult and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly competent technical staff will move your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got lots of experience with website migration and can handle anything – from a customary WordPress blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a very complex, custom–built app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several facets that you need to take into account – the actual size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive info. We’ll require, however, the login info for your current hosting account and the name of the site that you would like to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. Once we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS resource records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can acquire 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 like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
