Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service available at Consultores-TIC is entirely free of charge and involves transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving just about any website. With years of experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. However, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are various elements that you need to take into consideration – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain visible online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: No. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
