Q: Why should I transfer my site? What does web site migration include?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your site, or if you experience regular network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care staff to reply to you, it might be a smart idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Plenty-Hosting, we know that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our highly experienced technical staff members will transfer your web site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience with website migration and can take care of anything – from a normal WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time will it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain variables that you need to take into account – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What details do you need to have?
A: We do not collect any sensitive info. We will require, though, the login info for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is update the name server records corresponding to your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
