Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Wise Pro Solutions is totally free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings needed for your websites to be completely operational on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring just about any website. With years of practical experience in this field, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made web application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We strive to carry out all web site migrations ASAP. Even so, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you need to take into consideration – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: We will need the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my site?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we will make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised before telling you that the migration is completed. Then we will explain to you how to move the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yes. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
