Q: What does the web site migration service consist of? Will my site be secure?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your site, or if you experience frequent network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care staff to reply back to you, it may be smart to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At CombatVetsWeb, we understand that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is why we will do all that for you for free!Our skillful technical staff will migrate your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience with web site migration and are able to handle anything – from an average WordPress weblog or Joomla–powered web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are many factors to take into account – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We don’t collect any sensitive data. We’ll need, however, the login information for your old web hosting account and the name of the site that you need to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your website will continue to be fully operational during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform so long as we can get 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 apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
