Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your web site, or if you go through frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the tech support team to reply back to you, it might be smart to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Greater Atlanta Hosting , we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is the reason why we will perform all that for you for free!Our highly professional technical team representatives will move your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience with website migration and can handle everything – from a common WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time can it take?
A: There are many factors to keep in mind – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. That said, we do our very best to accomplish all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any personal info. We will need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account and the name of the website that you need to move.
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nope. Your site will remain visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
