Q: Why do I need to transfer my site? What does website migration include?
A: The website migration service on offer at Advanced Tech Center is entirely free of charge and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the settings required for your web sites to be completely functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of work experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. Even so, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several elements that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you need?
A: We don’t request any personal details. We’ll need, though, the login information for your old hosting account and the name of the site that you need to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is over, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is done. Then we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we migrate your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
