Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your web site, or when you experience regular downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support team to get back to you, it might be a good idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Rave Review Hosting, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. That’s why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our practiced technical team will transfer your web site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience with web site migration and can take care of everything – from an average WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–driven web site, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are lots of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our very best to move your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not very large).
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll require the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: No. Your site will remain online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll tell you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s fine, all you will have to do is modify your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we do not provide Windows hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary site building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
