Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration include?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Informatization Shop is entirely free of charge and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with a lot of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: There are a lot of aspects to keep in mind – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. However, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What info do you need?
A: We will require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: Nope. Your site will continue to be accessible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s OK, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not require anything. We will never contact your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform so long as we can access the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we are unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
