Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your site, or when you go through continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk team to reply back to you, it may be a smart idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Anas Hosting, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly trained technical team representatives will migrate your website content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience with website migration and can handle anything – from an ordinary WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a very complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred to your platform?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you need to take into account – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my website?
A: We don’t collect any private data. We’ll require, though, the login information for your present hosting account and the name of the site that you wish to migrate.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your website 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 edit the name server records associated with your domain name. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
