Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your web site, or if you suffer from constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support team to respond to you, it might be smart to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Compubob Internet Services, we know that this can be difficult & time–consuming. Because of this, we will do all that for you for free!Our highly proficient technical staff representatives will migrate your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built application.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of variables to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Yet, we do try to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not require any private details. We’ll need, however, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you want to migrate.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we are through with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Basically, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
