Q: Why should I transfer my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: The website migration service on offer at iowebtech.com is entirely free and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings necessary for your web sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different facets that you have to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What information do you need?
A: We don’t need any personal info. We’ll need, however, the login info for your present hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will stay reachable online during the transfer. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yup. We support all traditional Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary web site creation and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
