Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your website, or if you undergo constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer care team to respond to you, it might be a good idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Aussie Hosting Services, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our skillful technical staff representatives will move your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience with website migration and can take care of everything – from a traditional WordPress blog or Joomla™–based website, to an extremely complex, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different variables that you have to take into consideration – the mere size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your web site will stay reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
