Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your web site, or if you face continual network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk team to respond to you, it might be a good idea to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Savannah Domains, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our skillful technical team reps will migrate your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with web site migration and are able to handle everything – from a common WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various aspects that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
