Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my website be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your site, or if you undergo constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer service staff to reply back to you, it might be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At RCS-Tek, we understand that this can often be hard and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll do all that for you at no cost!Our skillful technical team members will migrate your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have plenty of experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from a normal WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™–based web site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are lots of aspects to consider – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Nevertheless, we do try to implement all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What data will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not gather any personal info. We’ll require, though, the login information for your current hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to transfer.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your website will remain available online during the migration. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we will let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s okay, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: While we migrate your website content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: Yup. We support all common Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
