Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my site be safe?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your web site, or when you undergo frequent downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client service staff to respond back to you, it might be smart to change your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Easy Hostway Europe, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our expert technical team members will transfer your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience with website migration and are able to take care of everything – from a traditional WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–powered site, to an extremely complex, custom–built application.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different elements that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We don’t collect any private details. We will need, though, the login info for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to migrate.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will remain available online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
