Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my site be secure?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or when you experience continual network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client care staff to respond back to you, it might be a smart idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At TMV Hosting, we know that this can be difficult & time–consuming. For this reason, we will do all that for you for free!Our highly accomplished technical team members will migrate your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with website migration and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress blog or Joomla™ web site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you need to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What data do you need to have?
A: We do not need any sensitive details. We will need, however, the login information for your current hosting account and the name of the web site that you need to move.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the transfer is done, we’ll ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not affected prior to telling you that the migration is complete. Then we will tell you how to transfer the domain to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
