Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your web site, or when you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support staff to get back to you, it may be a good idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At We Host WebZ, we are aware that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our practiced technical staff will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from a standard WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–driven web site, to an extremely complex, custom–built application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to bear in mind – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller websites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: No. Your site will stay reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
