Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The website migration service on offer at WEBCIOCRACY is completely free and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any sort of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain facets that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my website?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We will also require a means to log into your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be fully operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
