Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your site, or if you suffer from continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the support team to get back to you, it might be a clever idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At HOSTING y DOMINIOS Ecuador, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly proficient technical staff reps will move your website content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have extensive experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from a traditional WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various things that you have to take into account – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my website?
A: We don’t require any private information. We will require, however, the login information for your present web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nope. Your site will remain completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform on condition that we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
