Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my site be secure?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer match the needs of your website, or when you experience continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support team to respond back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At WebWeHost.com, we realize that this can often be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we will do all that for you for free!Our highly experienced technical staff will move your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based web site, to a very complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are a lot of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We do not gather any private information. We’ll need, however, the login info for your old web hosting account along with the name of the website that you want to migrate.
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. After the transfer is done, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before telling you that the transfer is over. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
