Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the demands of your website, or when you experience constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk team to respond to you, it may be a good idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Tiketbagus, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our highly trained technical team will transfer your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with website migration and are able to handle anything – from an average WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are plenty of aspects to take into account – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our best to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are migrated faster – usually in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What info do you need?
A: Yes. We’ll require the name of the website that you’d like us to move. We will also need a way to log in to your present web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: While we transfer your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. After the migration is complete, we will ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not jeopardized prior to telling you that the migration is over. Then we will tell you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: No. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform given that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s 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.
