Q: What precisely does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your website, or if you undergo constant network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support team to respond to you, it may be a good idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Sytec Computers Ltd, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our proficient technical staff members will move your site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have extensive experience with website migration and are able to handle everything – from a standard WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–driven site, to a very complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of factors to think about – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Nevertheless, we do try to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized sites are migrated much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What information do you need?
A: We do not need any private data. We will need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will have to do is update the name server resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site building and administration user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
