Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my web site be safe?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or if you go through regular network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply to you, it may be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At SEO Catcher, we understand that this can often be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our seasoned technical team representatives will transfer your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven web site, to a highly complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time frame, since there are lots of factors, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to migrate your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not large).
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you require?
A: We’ll require the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are through with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server records pertaining to your domain. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform so long as we can acquire access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software applications such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
