Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your web site, or when you experience constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply back to you, it might be a clever idea to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At MotivatedTalents, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. That is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our expert technical staff members will transfer your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience with web site migration and are able to handle everything – from a common WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered site, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long can it take?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain aspects that you have to take into account – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What information do you require?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. As soon as the migration is over, we will ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected prior to telling you that the transfer is over. Then we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can migrate your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we’re unable to migrate are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
