Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the necessities of your website, or if you go through frequent downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer support staff to get back to you, it might be a good idea to change your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At VIP Luxury Websites, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. Because of this, we will do all that for you at no cost!Our skillful technical team representatives will transfer your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from a normal WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–driven website, to a very elaborate, custom–built application.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How much time can it take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various things that you need to take into consideration – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We don’t collect any information that is private. We’ll need, however, the login info for your current web hosting account along with the name of the web site that you want to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: No. Your website will continue to be reachable online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
