Q: Why should I move my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the demands of your web site, or when you suffer from frequent downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk support staff to reply back to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At tipkao.com, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. For this reason, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our capable technical staff reps will move your web site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress weblog or Joomla™–based site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How long can it take?
A: There are a lot of factors to think about – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do our very best to carry out all web site migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Less sizeable sites are transferred much faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not collect any private details. We’ll need, however, the login information for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we transfer your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is over, we will ensure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your content is not compromised prior to informing you that the migration is over. After that, we will explain to you how to move the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
