Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your site, or if you face continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer care staff to respond back to you, it might be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At suresh-in, we realize that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly trained technical staff reps will migrate your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience with website migration and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, because there are plenty of factors, including the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We will also require a means to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
