Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service provided by TecIT Solutions is absolutely free of cost and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not collect any sensitive details. We will need, however, the login information for your present hosting account along with the name of the site that you’d like to move.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: While we move your site, 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 complete, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected prior to informing you that the transfer is over. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
