Q: Why should I move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your web site, or if you undergo constant downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the tech support staff to get back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Web Hosting Train, we understand that this can often be hard & time–consuming. For this reason, we will do all that for you at no cost!Our qualified technical team representatives will move your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience with web site migration and are able to take care of anything – from a typical WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: There are many aspects to think about – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do our best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What info do you require?
A: We don’t request any private information. We will require, however, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will stay online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current 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 will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary website creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
