Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your website, or when you go through continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the tech support team to respond to you, it may be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At maxmillian.net, we are aware that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our highly skilled technical team will move your site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven web site, to a very elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are different aspects that you need to take into account – the actual size of your website and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What data will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my website?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is finished, we will make certain that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your data is not affected prior to informing you that the transfer is completed. Then we will explain to you how to transfer the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS settings.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login info for the Control Panel, we won’t require anything. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: Yep. We support all common Linux–based web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we don’t offer Windows hosting services ourselves.We also do not support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
