Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your web site, or when you undergo continual downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the tech support team to reply back to you, it may be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At The Sales Builder, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our expert technical team will transfer your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating websites and are able to handle anything – from a typical WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based website, to a very complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain aspects that you need to consider – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What info do you require?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the site that you would like us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
