Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your website, or when you go through continuous downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Midas 1 Hosting, we know that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly knowledgeable technical staff representatives will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with web site migration and can take care of everything – from a typical WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a very complex, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, since there are lots of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to move your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the migration is finished, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized before informing you that the migration is done. Then we will tell you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
