Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your web site, or if you suffer from regular network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond back to you, it might be a good idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At IslamicDataCenter.com, we know that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our highly qualified technical team will move your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience with website migration and are able to handle everything – from a normal WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–based web site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are plenty of factors to take into account – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. That said, we do try to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller–sized websites are migrated much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. Once we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will have to do is update the name server resource records corresponding to your domain name. Your website will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
