Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your website, or if you face regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support team to respond back to you, it may be a smart idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Best Of British World, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical team will move your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience with web site migration and can handle everything – from an ordinary WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–based web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are a lot of factors to keep in mind – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We will also require a way to log into your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Nope. Your site will remain reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
