Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be safe?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your website, or when you suffer from continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply to you, it might be a good idea to switch your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Angry Dog Hosting Company, we know that this can often be hard and time–consuming. This is why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our qualified technical staff will move your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with website migration and can take care of anything – from a regular WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–powered web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: How long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are plenty of factors to take into consideration – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do try to accomplish all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller sites are transferred faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What info do you need to have?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the web site that you would like us to move. We’ll also require a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your web site will remain completely operational during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
