Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer match the needs of your web site, or if you face continuous network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer support staff to reply to you, it may be a good idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At AnyPursuit Domains and Hosting, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly trained technical staff will transfer your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating web sites and are able to handle everything – from a common WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various elements that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We do not require any information that is personal. We’ll require, however, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. After the transfer is over, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised prior to informing you that the migration is finished. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
