Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does website migration consist of?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your web site, or when you suffer from constant downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At EnimaTech, we realize that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our skilled technical staff representatives will transfer your web site content from your present provider to us. Our technicians have got extensive experience migrating web sites and can take care of anything – from an ordinary WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–based site, to a highly complex, custom–built app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain factors that you need to take into account – the mere size of your website 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 staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What info do you require?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the web site that you would like us to move. We will also need a means to log in to your old web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server resource records for your domain. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: No. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can migrate your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
