Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your website, or when you undergo frequent downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer service team to respond to you, it might be a clever idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At TechnoMomma, we realize that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical staff members will transfer your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and are able to handle anything – from an average WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long will it take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different variables that you need to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: We don’t gather any private info. We will require, however, the login info for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you wish to migrate.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. After the transfer is complete, we will make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised prior to informing you that the migration is done. After that, we will tell you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
