Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration include?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your site, or when you experience regular network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support staff to respond back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At TidBit5150 IT Services, we know that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our highly competent technical staff members will move your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with web site migration and can handle anything – from a normal WordPress blog or Joomla™–based site, to a very elaborate, custom–built application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long will it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different variables that you have to consider – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t need any personal information. We’ll need, though, the login info for your present web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you would like to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: Your web site will work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we are done with the migration, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is change the name server resource records pertaining to your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yeah. We support all common Linux–based web hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
