Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does website migration include?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer match the needs of your website, or when you go through continual downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support team to respond back to you, it might be a clever idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At AjWebHosting, we understand that this can be hard & time–consuming. That is the reason why we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our professional technical staff reps will move your web site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to take care of everything – from a customary WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–based web site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, because there are plenty of variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to move your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What data do you require?
A: We do not require any personal info. We will need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your web site will continue to be online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: No. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
