Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my site be safe?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the requirements of your website, or if you suffer from continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service staff to reply back to you, it may be a smart idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At SWR Domains, we are aware that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. For this reason, we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our professional technical team reps will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience migrating websites and can handle everything – from a traditional WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time can it take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time interval, since there are a lot of variables, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our very best to move your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nope. Your web site will continue to be fully operational during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
