Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your web site, or if you go through continual network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service team to reply back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Scottish Hosting, we realize that this can be difficult and time–consuming. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our seasoned technical team members will transfer your site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience with website migration and can take care of everything – from an average WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are different elements that you need to take into consideration – the actual size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We will need the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Nah. Your web site will remain reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
