Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it involve?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your web site, or when you suffer from continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond to you, it might be a clever idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Frozen Peach Web Hosting, we realize that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly proficient technical team will migrate your website content from your current provider to us. Our techs have broad experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from a common WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to a very complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, since there are a lot of factors, among them the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to transfer your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to access your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Nah. Your site will remain online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
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 web hosting platform on condition that we can get access to 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 apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
