Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your site, or if you suffer from continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the technical support team to get back to you, it might be a clever idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Domain Authority, we know that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical team reps will transfer your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with web site migration and are able to handle anything – from a traditional WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are many aspects to think about – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before telling you that the migration is finished. After that, we will instruct you how to transfer the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to change your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
