Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your site, or when you suffer from frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support team to respond back to you, it may be smart to switch 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 EZ123WebHost.com, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our proficient technical team reps will transfer your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience with web site migration and can handle anything – from a normal WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to an extremely complex, custom–built web app.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: There are lots of factors to take into consideration – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. However, we do try to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable websites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What details do you need to have?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is completed, we will make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is complete. Then we will explain to you how to move the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
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: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
