Q: Why should I move my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your web site, or when you experience frequent downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer care team to reply to you, it may be a good idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At webregiment.com, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our highly capable technical team representatives will transfer your web site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from a normal WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™–based site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How long does it take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to bear in mind – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Even so, we do our very best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred much faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. After we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is edit the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
