Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your web site, or when you experience continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond to you, it may be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At AirNom Hosting, we understand that this can be hard & time–consuming. That’s why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly professional technical staff reps will transfer your site content from your current provider to us. Our techs have got plenty of experience migrating web sites and are able to handle everything – from a typical WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various elements that you have to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What details do you need to have?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as the migration is complete, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before notifying you that the transfer is over. Then we will explain to you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform given that we can access the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
