Q: Why should I move my web site? What does website migration consist of?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or if you experience frequent downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care staff to respond back to you, it may be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At TALOSWEB, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. This is the reason why we will do all that for you for free!Our practiced technical team will move your web site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have a lot of experience migrating web sites and can take care of anything – from an ordinary WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to a very elaborate, custom–built app.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to carry out all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain elements that you have to take into account – the sheer size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my website?
A: We will need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is change the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
