Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your web site, or when you go through constant downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the support staff to reply to you, it may be a smart idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At NixaWeb.com, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly experienced technical staff reps will migrate your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got lots of experience with web site migration and can handle everything – from a regular WordPress weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: There are many factors to think about – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do try to perform all web site migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are transferred faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We don’t request any private details. We will require, though, the login information for your old web hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to transfer.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: No. Your web site will remain completely operational during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is OK, all you will have to do is change your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site creation and management tools like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
