Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the demands of your site, or when you suffer from constant downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client service staff to respond back to you, it may be a good idea to switch your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Bamfoxx Webhost, we know that this can often be hard & time–consuming. Because of this, we will accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our skillful technical team representatives will move your site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have extensive experience with website migration and are able to handle everything – from a normal WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–powered site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, because there are lots of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to migrate your site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not large).
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to move. We will also need a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: My current hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nope. Your site will stay available online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform provided that we can access the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
