Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your site, or if you undergo constant downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk staff to reply to you, it might be a clever idea to switch your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At 95Dollar.Website, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. For this reason, we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our qualified technical staff representatives will move your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience with web site migration and are able to handle everything – from a common WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be moved over to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various elements that you need to take into consideration – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What data do you require?
A: We don’t request any sensitive information. We’ll require, though, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the site that you want to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will remain visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is edit your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yeah. We support all regular Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
