Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your web site, or if you face continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service team to get back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At The Whole Internet, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our qualified technical staff will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience migrating websites and can handle everything – from a typical WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different variables that you need to consider – the actual size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We don’t collect any personal details. We’ll need, though, the login info for your old web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Your site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
