Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the needs of your site, or if you undergo continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client support team to get back to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Dibiga Hosting, we realize that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly competent technical team reps will move your web site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience migrating web sites and can handle everything – from a standard WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to a very complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are lots of variables to bear in mind – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do try to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Smaller websites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will need the name of the site that you wish us to transfer. We will also need a means to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your website will remain visible online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is update your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can access your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
