Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer meet the requirements of your website, or if you go through continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk staff to respond back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Persistent Faith Studios, we understand that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly capable technical team members will migrate your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from a traditional WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–driven site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to consider – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. However, we do try to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable web sites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not collect any private information. We will need, however, the login information for your current hosting account and the name of the website that you would like to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Nope. Your website will remain reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know 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’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary website building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
