Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your site, or if you undergo regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Eaa Hosting, we understand that this can be hard & time–consuming. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly trained technical team members will migrate your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience with web site migration and can handle everything – from a customary WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ web site, to a very elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time window, because there are a lot of variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to move your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What details do you require?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the web site that you’d like us to transfer. We’ll also need a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Nope. Your website will remain fully operational during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Basically, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
