Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration include?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your web site, or if you go through constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the support staff to get back to you, it might be a smart idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Xeetec Hosting, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. That’s why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our expert technical staff members will transfer your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience with web site migration and are able to handle everything – from a traditional WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various aspects that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We don’t request any private information. We will require, though, the login information for your current web hosting account along with the name of the website that you’d like to move.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: No. Your website will remain reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
