Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration consist of?
A: The website migration service available at Elite Web Agents is completely free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of work experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: How long will it take for my web site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to consider – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller websites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you require?
A: Yeah. We will require the name of the website that you want us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to log in to your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. When the migration is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised prior to informing you that the transfer is complete. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
