Q: What does the website migration service involve? Will my web site be secure?
A: The web site migration service on offer at AB3 WEB, LLC is absolutely free of charge and involves moving all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your web sites to be completely operational on our cutting–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web application with numerous custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are lots of factors to consider – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our web site migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour window. Smaller web sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: What info will I be required to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t gather any personal info. We’ll need, however, the login info for your old hosting account as well as the name of the website that you would like to move.
Q: My present web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former web hosting provider. When the migration is completed, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before notifying you that the transfer is finished. After that, we will instruct you how to transfer the domain to your web hosting account with us and how to change your DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer web content from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Generally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your website.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
