Q: What exactly does web site migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service available at IMP Web Solutions is completely free and involves moving all your web files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any sort of website. With years of experience in the industry, they are experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web app with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our team usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We do not collect any personal details. We will require, however, the login info for your current hosting account along with the name of the website that you would like to migrate.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Nope. Your website will stay available online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: No. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
