Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does web site migration include?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your web site, or when you experience regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk team to reply back to you, it might be a smart idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Ozzieblue, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. Because of this, we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly trained technical staff will migrate your site content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating web sites and can take care of everything – from a conventional WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely complex, custom–built app.
Q: How long will it take for my website to be moved over to your platform?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various variables that you have to consider – the mere size of your site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized websites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My privacy concerns me. What information do you require?
A: We do not require any personal information. We’ll need, though, the login information for your current web hosting account as well as the name of the site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Nah. Your site will continue to be available online during the migration. As soon as everything is done on our end, we will inform you so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
