Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer answer the demands of your website, or if you go through continual downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support staff to reply to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At C.A.A. Hosting, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly competent technical team representatives will transfer your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of anything – from a regular WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a very elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: While we cannot give you an exact time window, since there are many factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to transfer your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What details do you require?
A: We do not need any personal info. We will require, however, the login info for your old hosting account along with the name of the website that you wish to move.
Q: I give you access to delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: No. Your website will remain online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform as long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
