Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration include?
A: The web site migration service available at Google Web Scan is absolutely free and consists of moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also modify all the settings necessary for your websites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of moving any sort of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time frame, since there are plenty of factors, including the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the current host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will do our very best to move your web site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: What info will I be required to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We will need the name of the website that you would like us to move. We’ll also need a way to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your former web hosting provider. As soon as we have completed the migration, your site will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the name server resource records associated with your domain name. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can migrate your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
