Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service available at WebTech Group is entirely free and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also update all the settings required for your sites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any web site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are lots of variables to take into account – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Yet, we do our best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We don’t gather any sensitive data. We’ll require, though, the login info for your current hosting account along with the name of the website that you need to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the transfer is completed, we will ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before informing you that the transfer is complete. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
