Q: Why should I move my site? What does website migration include?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the needs of your web site, or if you suffer from continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client care staff to respond back to you, it may be a clever idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Sinhaya Web Hosting, we understand that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That’s why we will do all that for you for free!Our proficient technical staff members will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ web site, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What data do you need to have?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the website that you’d like us to migrate. We will also require a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is over. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
