Q: Why should I move my website? What does web site migration involve?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the necessities of your website, or when you suffer from continual network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client service team to reply to you, it might be smart to change your web hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At By Catholics, we are aware that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. This is the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our capable technical staff representatives will transfer your website content from your present web hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got extensive experience with website migration and are able to take care of everything – from a regular WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–based website, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be moved over to your platform?
A: There are many variables to keep in mind – the overall amount of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. Yet, we do try to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: What details will I be asked to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yeah. We’ll need the name of the web site that you’d like us to move. We will also need a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your web site.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we move your web site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. As soon as the migration is done, we will make sure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected prior to informing you that the transfer is done. Then we will tell you how to move the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS settings.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: No. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–based hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we do not provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we don’t support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
