Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your web site, or if you undergo continual downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Business Class Premium Hosting, we know that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly capable technical team members will move your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from a regular WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™–driven web site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time interval, because there are a lot of variables, including the size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to move your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the migration is finished, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before notifying you that the transfer is over. Then we will tell you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
