Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service available at I Services is entirely free and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your present provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings required for your sites to be fully operational on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any type of website. With years of work experience in this field, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain elements that you need to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We will also require a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: No. Your website will stay reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is done 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 edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. In essence, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
