Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my site be secure?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your website, or when you suffer from constant downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to get back to you, it may be smart to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Dashdot Hosting, we realize that this can often be hard and time–consuming. For this reason, we will perform all that for you for free!Our professional technical team representatives will migrate your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–powered site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: There are a lot of factors to think about – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do our best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized web sites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We will also need a means to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: No. Your website will stay accessible online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
