Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: The website migration service on offer at SOMOSOTECH CO. I.T. LTD is entirely free and consists of moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also modify all the settings needed for your web sites to be completely functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of site. With years of experience in the industry, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise ETA, since there are plenty of variables, including the size of the files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your website within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: What data will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be offline?
A: Nope. Your website will remain visible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is change your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform on condition that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
