Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The website migration service on offer at Ibe Internet Technologies Ltd. is completely free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and emails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings needed for your web sites to be completely functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any kind of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made app with multiple custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long does it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are lots of factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to transfer your web site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (in case the website content is not large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My current web hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we transfer your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
