Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your web site, or when you face continuous network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply back to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At apluschoice, we are aware that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical staff reps will migrate your web site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience migrating web sites and are able to handle anything – from an average WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ web site, to an extremely complex, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be moved over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are many variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to transfer your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What details do you need?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the website that you’d like us to move. We will also require a means to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will stay reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform provided that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
