Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service available at A2Z Business Solutions is completely free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully functional on our innovative cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with a lot of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, because there are many variables, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (when the content is not very large).
Q: What data will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected before informing you that the migration is completed. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
