Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be secure?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your web site, or when you undergo continuous downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support staff to get back to you, it might be smart to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Sopdap Technologies, we know that this can be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will perform all that for you for free!Our knowledgeable technical staff representatives will migrate your web site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience with web site migration and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to a highly complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: There are many aspects to bear in mind – the overall number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do our best to perform all web site migrations within a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are migrated faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What details do you need?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the web site that you wish us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to access your old web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. Apart from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
