Q: What precisely does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service offered by IDoWanta Dot Com is completely free of charge and involves transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also update all the settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any type of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We strive to perform all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various things that you have to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you need?
A: We do not gather any information that is personal. We’ll need, however, the login information for your present web hosting account along with the name of the site that you need to migrate.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: No. Your website will stay reachable online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
