Q: Why should I move my site? What does website migration involve?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your site, or when you suffer from regular downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the client care team to reply back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Plug-In Profit Site Domains, we realize that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is why we will do all that for you for free!Our seasoned technical staff will migrate your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have got plenty of experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from an ordinary WordPress blog or Joomla™–driven website, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, because there are a lot of variables, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our best to move your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not very large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my web site?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the web site that you want us to move. We’ll also need a way to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. After the transfer is completed, we will ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is completed. Then we’ll tell you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we do not support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
