Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your web site, or when you experience continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk staff to respond to you, it may be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At HostingMedo - Business Limitless, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our qualified technical team representatives will migrate your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to handle anything – from a conventional WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ website, to an extremely complex, custom–built app.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are plenty of variables to bear in mind – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Even so, we do try to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We don’t gather any sensitive info. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the site that you wish to move.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
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 migration is done, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the transfer is complete. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
