Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the needs of your website, or if you experience constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client service staff to reply back to you, it might be a good idea to swap your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Amazonserver.net, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly experienced technical staff reps will move your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got plenty of experience with website migration and can handle everything – from a regular WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a very complex, custom–made app.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various elements that you have to consider – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not gather any private information. We’ll require, however, the login info for your present web hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. After the migration is done, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is completed. After that, we will explain to you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
