Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your website, or when you suffer from frequent network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the technical support staff to respond to you, it might be smart to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At MKW Industries, we understand that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. Because of this, we will perform all that for you for free!Our highly trained technical staff reps will move your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience with web site migration and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–driven web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. How long is it going to take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to take into account – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Smaller–sized websites are migrated faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the web site that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. Once we have finished the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is change the name server records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
