Q: Why should I move my site? What does website migration involve?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your web site, or if you face continuous downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk team to respond to you, it might be a good idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Draze Hosting, we are aware that this can be hard and time–consuming. For this reason, we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our skilled technical staff representatives will migrate your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to take care of everything – from a regular WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be moved to your platform?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several variables that you need to take into account – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We’ll require the name of the web site that you would like us to move. We’ll also need a means to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your website will remain online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is change your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
