Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your web site, or if you go through constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer service team to get back to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Newage Hosting Service, we realize that this can be hard & time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our capable technical staff members will migrate your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with web site migration and are able to take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ website, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are plenty of variables to think about – the total amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Still, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also need a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. Once the transfer is completed, we will ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to informing you that the transfer is completed. After that, we’ll tell you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform on condition that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
