Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: The website migration service offered by WeData Storge is absolutely free of cost and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully operational on our ultramodern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any kind of site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to take into consideration – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What info do you need to have?
A: Yup. We’ll need the name of the site that you wish us to migrate. We will also require a means to log in to your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is over, we’ll make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is done. Then we’ll explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
