Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does website migration include?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer match the needs of your website, or if you undergo continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the support staff to reply back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Tirevs, we are aware that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our expert technical staff representatives will transfer your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got lots of experience migrating websites and are able to take care of everything – from an average WordPress–based blog or Joomla–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time window, since there are many factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to move your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: What details will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will stay completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we will tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yes. We support all conventional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site creation and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
