Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration entail?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer satisfy the demands of your web site, or when you experience continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care team to respond back to you, it may be a good idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At DFF Hosting And Domains, we are aware that this can often be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our seasoned technical staff will migrate your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience with website migration and are able to handle anything – from a typical WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, because there are a lot of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the content is not large).
Q: What info will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the web site that you’d like us to transfer. We will also need a way to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will continue to be completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we move your website content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
