Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your site, or if you undergo regular network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the technical support staff to get back to you, it may be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Mirror Impact Web Hosting Solutions, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly professional technical staff representatives will migrate your web site content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with website migration and are able to take care of everything – from a typical WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–powered web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. Just how long will it take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, since there are many factors, including the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll do our best to migrate your site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the content is not very large).
Q: What data will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We’ll need the login details for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Your site will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. After we are through with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is edit the name server records for your domain name. Your web site will be transferred to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. We will never contact your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform so long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we’re unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software applications like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
