Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your website, or when you suffer from regular network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the support team to get back to you, it might be a smart idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Cute Cute Web Hosting, we realize that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our highly trained technical staff reps will transfer your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience with web site migration and can take care of anything – from a regular WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to a very complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are plenty of variables, including the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to migrate your site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you require?
A: We do not require any personal info. We will need, though, the login info for your old hosting account and the name of the website that you’d like to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your old hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working properly, all you will need to do is change the name server resource records for your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your web site from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform provided that we can get access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we can’t migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
