Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your web site, or when you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer support team to respond to you, it might be smart to swap 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 BHPG Hosting, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That’s why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our skillful technical team reps will migrate your web site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience with website migration and are able to take care of anything – from a conventional WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™–based website, to a highly elaborate, custom–built application.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different facets that you need to take into account – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We do not need any information that is personal. We will require, though, the login information for your old hosting account and the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is change the NS records associated with your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we are unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
