Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration include?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the needs of your site, or if you suffer from continuous downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care team to reply back to you, it might be smart to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Clinton W J Collins, we are aware that this can be difficult and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our trained technical staff members will transfer your site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with website migration and are able to handle everything – from a conventional WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain elements that you need to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the site that you want us to move. We’ll also require a way to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your website will stay available online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your 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 web hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform given that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
