Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my website be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your web site, or if you experience constant downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client service team to respond back to you, it may be a smart idea to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At LA Tech Services, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our skilled technical team reps will move your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got a lot of experience migrating web sites and can handle anything – from a conventional WordPress blog or Joomla™–powered site, to a very complex, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will the web site migration procedure take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations ASAP. Nevertheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different elements that you need to consider – the very size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller websites, our team usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records for your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: No. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate website content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
