A: The website migration service available at Electro Whizz is totally free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring just about any site. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web application with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are several elements that you need to consider – the mere size of your website and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to perform each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need to have?
A: Yup. We will need to have the name of the website that you wish us to move. We will also require a means to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is edit the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Basically, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we will be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
