Q: Why should I move my site? What does website migration consist of?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your site, or if you undergo continual downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the tech support staff to get back to you, it might be a good idea to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At CyberCityNet, we know that this can be difficult & time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical staff reps will migrate your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got plenty of experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a typical WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ site, to a very elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. However, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain things that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my site?
A: We do not gather any information that is sensitive. We will require, though, the login info for your old web hosting account and the name of the web site that you would like to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be offline?
A: Nah. Your site will remain online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
