Q: What does the web site migration service include? Will my site be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer answer the needs of your website, or when you experience frequent downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client service team to get back to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At GESIC Computers USA, we know that this can be hard & time–consuming. That’s why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our skillful technical staff representatives will move your site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have lots of experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of anything – from a common WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a very complex, custom–built app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be transferred over to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are plenty of factors, including the size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our very best to migrate your web site within 48 hours, and in certain cases – within 24 hours (when the website content is not large).
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you require?
A: Yes. We will require the name of the site that you want us to migrate. We’ll also require a means to log in to your current hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: No. Your website will stay visible online during the migration. Once everything is completed on our end, we will tell you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is OK, all you will need to do is edit your domain’s DNS settings.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we won’t need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present hosting provider is using?
A: We can transfer your web site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform as long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
