Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your web site, or when you face frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support staff to respond to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Lead Website Design Hosting, we know that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly capable technical staff representatives will transfer your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got plenty of experience with website migration and can handle everything – from a common WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are plenty of variables to consider – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my website?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is update the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary website building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
