Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer match the needs of your website, or when you face constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the support team to respond 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 along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Website Tool Solutions, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. This is why we will perform all that for you for free!Our highly capable technical team reps will transfer your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and can take care of anything – from a common WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven website, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to think about – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized websites are transferred much faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any private info. We will need, however, the login information for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to transfer.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is finished, we’ll ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to notifying you that the transfer is done. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary site building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
