Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does website migration include?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your site, or when you suffer from frequent network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the customer support team to reply back to you, it might be a smart idea to change your hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At CCMR Hosting, we know that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our practiced technical staff reps will migrate your website content from your present hosting provider to us. Our techs have lots of experience with website migration and can handle everything – from a customary WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™ CMS–driven web site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long will it take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several aspects that you have to take into consideration – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my web site?
A: We do not require any private info. We’ll need, however, the login information for your present hosting account and the name of the web site that you need to move.
Q: You will access sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. After we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is update the NS resource records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your web content, your hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Basically, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
