Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the demands of your web site, or if you face continual downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At WebTraKtor, we realize that this can be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our seasoned technical staff members will migrate your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of anything – from a common WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™–driven web site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: There are a lot of aspects to keep in mind – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nonetheless, we do try to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive information. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. Once we are through with the migration, your website will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is update the name server records for your domain. Your web site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
