Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does web site migration include?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the requirements of your web site, or if you face continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply to you, it might be smart to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At N-MAN, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. That’s why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our highly professional technical team reps will migrate your website content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience migrating websites and are able to take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based website, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are plenty of variables, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to move your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We will need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is complete, we will ensure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before telling you that the migration is complete. After that, we will instruct you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to update your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nope. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
