Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration involve?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your site, or if you experience frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support staff to reply to you, it might be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Webpaz, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our highly professional technical team will transfer your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience with website migration and can take care of anything – from a standard WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are lots of factors to think about – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable web sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the name server resource records associated with your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
