Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the necessities of your website, or when you go through constant downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client care staff to get back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Sheep In Space Web Solutions, we are aware that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you for free!Our capable technical team reps will migrate your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and are able to handle everything – from a traditional WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time can it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, because there are plenty of variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our very best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in some cases – within 24 hours (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my website?
A: We don’t gather any personal info. We’ll require, though, the login information for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you need to move.
Q: My current web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your site will work just like it did before with your old hosting provider. When we have finished the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records associated with your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we transfer your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
