Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your site, or when you suffer from continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support team to respond to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At AmtecHost, we understand that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That is why we will do all that for you for free!Our highly capable technical team will migrate your website content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have got broad experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered website, to an extremely complex, custom–built web app.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long will it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time frame, because there are a lot of factors, including the size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to move your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (if the content is not very large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my site?
A: We’ll need the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your site will stay online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
