Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your web site, or when you go through continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client service team to reply back to you, it may be a smart idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At EasyWebABC.com, we realize that this can be hard & time–consuming. That is why we will perform all that for you for free!Our skillful technical staff representatives will move your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience with website migration and are able to handle everything – from an ordinary WordPress blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to a very complex, custom–made application.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are many variables to take into consideration – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Still, we do try to carry out all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to notifying you that the migration is complete. After that, we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
