Q: Why do I need to transfer my website? What does website migration involve?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your website, or if you suffer from continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer service team to reply back to you, it may be a smart idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider.

Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long is it going to take?

Less sizeable web sites are transferred much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.

A: We will need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as 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 unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is done, we will make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to informing you that the migration is complete. Then we’ll tell you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS records.

A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
