Q: Why should I transfer my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the requirements of your web site, or when you experience regular network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the tech support staff to respond to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At MITRIT.com, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That is the reason why we will perform all that for you at no cost!Our experienced technical staff reps will migrate your web site content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got plenty of experience migrating websites and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based site, to a very elaborate, custom–made app.
Q: How much time will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We strive to implement all website migrations as fast as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you need to take into account – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always strive to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We do not request any personal information. We will need, however, the login information for your old web hosting account as well as the name of the website that you want to transfer.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: While we move your website, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we will make certain that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before notifying you that the migration is complete. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain name over to your hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your web content, your hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can transfer your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there is File Transfer Protocol access available.The only websites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
