Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your web site, or if you experience frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer care staff to reply to you, it might be a good idea to change your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At antoon.it, we understand that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our expert technical team reps will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got broad experience with website migration and can handle anything – from a standard WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred to your platform?
A: There are plenty of variables to consider – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Still, we do our very best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller sites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We’ll need the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is complete, we will make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is completed. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
