Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: When your current hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your web site, or if you experience constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the customer service team to get back to you, it might be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At Sadiq Soft, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our skilled technical team will transfer your site content from your current provider to us. Our techs have broad experience with web site migration and can handle everything – from an ordinary WordPress–driven weblog or Joomla™–driven site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: We strive to accomplish all web site migrations ASAP. Still, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are various factors that you need to take into consideration – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What information do you need to have?
A: We’ll require the login details for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we move your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. Once the migration is completed, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your content is not affected before informing you that the migration is done. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t need anything. We’ll never contact your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yep. We support all standard Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–powered web hosting platforms, since we don’t offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.In addition, we don’t support proprietary website building and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
