Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be secure?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your site, or if you experience regular downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond to you, it might be smart to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At saience budget hosting, we are aware that this can be hard & time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our highly qualified technical team will migrate your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from a typical WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain things that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We don’t gather any sensitive information. We will need, though, the login info for your present hosting account and the name of the website that you need to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the name server records associated with your domain. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site building and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
