Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my site be secure?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your site, or when you go through frequent network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer care staff to respond back to you, it may be a smart idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At DomainSpaceRegistry, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly knowledgeable technical team members will transfer your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience with website migration and are able to take care of anything – from a standard WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™–based web site, to an extremely complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain factors that you need to consider – the mere size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What information do you require?
A: We will need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your website will stay online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Generally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
