Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the necessities of your web site, or if you go through regular network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client support staff to get back to you, it might be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At LA RED DE INGENIERIA PRO, we realize that this can be difficult & time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll do all that for you for free!Our competent technical team representatives will migrate your web site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from a regular WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–driven web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations as fast as possible. However, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are certain things that you need to consider – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not gather any personal information. We will need, however, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to move.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised before telling you that the transfer is done. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
