Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration include?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the demands of your site, or if you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care staff to respond back to you, it might be a good idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At BestCoolWebsite.com, we know that this can be hard & time–consuming. This is why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our practiced technical team will transfer your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience with website migration and are able to take care of anything – from an ordinary WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you have to consider – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my website?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a way to access your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. When the migration is done, we will make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before informing you that the migration is finished. Then we will explain to you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all common Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
