Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer meet the needs of your web site, or if you suffer from continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the support team to get back to you, it may be a clever idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Order Free Web Hosting Services, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. For this reason, we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our seasoned technical staff representatives will transfer your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience migrating web sites and are able to handle everything – from a typical WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long is it going to take?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain facets that you need to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you need?
A: We don’t need any information that is sensitive. We will need, however, the login info for your old hosting account and the name of the web site that you need to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nah. Your website will remain reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is okay, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform on condition that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
