Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does website migration entail?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or when you experience continuous downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care staff to get back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At enterprisehost.net, we know that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our highly trained technical team will migrate your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got extensive experience with website migration and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a highly complex, custom–made application.
Q: Just how long will the website migration process take?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as quickly as possible. Even so, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain aspects that you need to take into account – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you begin moving my website?
A: Yes. We’ll require the name of the website that you wish us to move. We’ll also need a means to access your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: No. Your web site will stay reachable online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything’s OK, all you will have to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform given that we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we cannot transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
