Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your website, or if you undergo regular downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer care team to respond back to you, it may be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Buy Domains Club, we realize that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly proficient technical team members will migrate your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of anything – from a normal WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly complex, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several aspects that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller websites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you’d like us to move. We’ll also require a way to access your present hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. After we are through with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server resource records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never contact your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yes. We support all common Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–powered hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary website building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
