Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by TrilogyWebServices is absolutely free and involves transferring all your files, databases and emails from your current provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, moving a custom web application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: There are plenty of variables to take into consideration – the total number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. Having said that, we do try to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour time window. Smaller sites are transferred faster – typically in under 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy concerns me. What data do you require?
A: We do not need any sensitive info. We’ll need, though, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the web site that you’d like to transfer.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the migration?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your previous hosting provider. After the migration is over, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning properly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to notifying you that the migration is complete. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to update the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider discover that I am leaving them?
A: No. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
