Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration include?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the demands of your website, or when you experience regular network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer support team to get back to you, it may be a good idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At KSA Web Host, we realize that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. This is the reason why we will do all that for you for free!Our highly experienced technical staff reps will transfer your site content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience with website migration and are able to handle anything – from a common WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based website, to a very complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How long does it take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain facets that you need to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always strive to perform each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What data do you require?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: No. Your website will stay reachable online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will have to do is edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate web content from?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–powered hosting platform as long as we can gain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only web sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
