Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer meet the demands of your site, or when you experience continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the support staff to get back to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Web Host LK, we realize that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly skilled technical team will migrate your site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience with web site migration and are able to take care of anything – from an average WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to bear in mind – the overall number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nonetheless, we do our best to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We do not collect any personal info. We will need, however, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you’d like to transfer.
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
