Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it include?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your website, or when you face continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the support team to respond to you, it might be a good idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At WHISPERNET, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our knowledgeable technical staff reps will migrate your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be moved to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you a precise ETA, because there are lots of factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to transfer your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Nah. Your site will stay completely operational during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
