Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your site, or when you experience continual network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond back to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Edotmarket, we understand that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our knowledgeable technical staff reps will move your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience migrating websites and can handle anything – from an ordinary WordPress blog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain aspects that you have to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What details do you need to have?
A: We don’t collect any private info. We will need, however, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the site that you would like to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is edit the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your website will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Generally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
