Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration entail?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer match the necessities of your website, or when you go through constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care staff to reply back to you, it might be a clever idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At KeepSailingWeb, we realize that this can often be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our practiced technical team representatives will move your web site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience with website migration and can take care of everything – from a standard WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™–based web site, to an extremely complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to take into consideration – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Still, we do our very best to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller web sites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you need?
A: We don’t require any sensitive info. We will need, however, the login info for your present web hosting account and the name of the web site that you would like to transfer.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your web site will stay reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–based hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and administration tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
