Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by SCGDomains.Com is totally free and consists of transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any type of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other popular Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–made application with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: There are many aspects to take into account – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller web sites are migrated faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What information do you require?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your former web hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your content, your web hosting provider will not 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 migrate content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
