Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does web site migration include?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer meet the needs of your website, or when you experience constant downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the support staff to get back to you, it might be smart to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Domain Discounts, we are aware that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our proficient technical staff representatives will migrate your web site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience with website migration and are able to take care of everything – from a standard WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–based site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain facets that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We do not gather any information that is personal. We will need, though, the login information for your old web hosting account along with the name of the site that you wish to transfer.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. After the migration is finished, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not jeopardized prior to notifying you that the migration is done. Then we’ll explain to you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yep. We support all traditional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
