Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your web site, or when you face frequent downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to respond to you, it might be a good idea to swap your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At bno1.com, we know that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our highly competent technical staff representatives will migrate your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got lots of experience with website migration and can take care of anything – from a normal WordPress blog or Joomla™–driven web site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of variables to think about – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Yet, we do try to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour window. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start transferring my website?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you want us to transfer. We will also require a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is modify the name server records pertaining to your domain. Your web site will be transferred over to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–powered hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
