Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your website, or if you suffer from regular downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client service staff to reply to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At ape-it, we know that this can be hard & time–consuming. That is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our experienced technical staff reps will transfer your website content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from a normal WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–powered website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That said, we do our very best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized sites are transferred faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is vital to me. What info do you require?
A: We do not request any information that is personal. We will require, however, the login info for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you would like to move.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is change the NS records associated with your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary site creation and management tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
