Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my web site be safe?
A: The website migration service provided by Argalink Infotech Ltd is totally free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our advanced cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving just about any site. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: We try to perform all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several variables that you have to take into consideration – the sheer size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We do not request any personal data. We’ll require, however, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you would like to move.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. When we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will have to do is edit the NS records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the migration at all. We will never get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we cannot migrate are those based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
