Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer match the demands of your website, or if you face constant network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service team to get back to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At TorontoHosting.com - Web Hosting in Toronto, we are aware that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our highly proficient technical staff members will transfer your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with web site migration and are able to take care of anything – from an average WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are plenty of factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to move your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not very large).
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you need?
A: Yup. We’ll require the name of the web site that you would like us to transfer. We will also require a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: No. Your site will stay accessible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
