Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be safe?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your site, or if you go through continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support team to respond to you, it might be a good idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Valitan, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That is the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our proficient technical team will migrate your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience with web site migration and are able to handle anything – from a standard WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: There are a lot of factors to consider – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller sites are transferred faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you want us to move. We’ll also need a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Nah. Your website will stay reachable online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
