Q: Why should I transfer my site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service provided by -Iclick2- Web Hosting and Cloud Service is absolutely free of cost and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be fully functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving just about any site. With years of practical experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, because there are a lot of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the website content is not large).
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yup. We’ll require the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We’ll also require a means to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the migration is completed, we will ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to notifying you that the transfer is finished. After that, we’ll explain to you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
