Q: Why should I move my web site? What does web site migration involve?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer measure up to the needs of your web site, or if you experience frequent downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the customer care team to reply back to you, it might be a good idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Inspireweb, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our practiced technical team representatives will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a very complex, custom–built web app.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: While we cannot give you an exact ETA, because there are many variables, among them the size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (in case the content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What data do you need?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the website that you wish us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Nah. Your website will remain visible online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is update your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: While we transfer your web content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will never contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
