Q: Why should I move my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The web site migration service available at Boz Web Design is absolutely free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully functional on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of web site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are 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–built app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to bear in mind – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our website migration professionals, etc. Even so, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Smaller–sized sites are migrated much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is important to me. What details do you require?
A: Yep. We will need the name of the web site that you want us to migrate. We will also need a way to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is change the name server records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any info/help?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary website building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
