That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!We’ve got highly proficient administrators whose chief responsibility is to make sure that your web site works exactly as it did on your old web hosting platform. Our administrators are experts in transferring custom–made sites, as well as sites that are based upon popular apps such as WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: There are plenty of factors to bear in mind – the total number of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Still, we do our best to implement all web site migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller web sites are transferred much faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my website?

Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. After we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is modify the NS records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be migrated over to us without any downtime.
