Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it involve?
A: When your present hosting provider can no longer measure up to the requirements of your website, or if you suffer from continuous network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support staff to get back to you, it might be smart to change your hosting provider, i.e. to move all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At BharatWeb.in, we know that this can be hard and time–consuming. This is the reason why we’ll do all that for you for free!Our trained technical staff representatives will migrate your site content from your current provider to us. Our techs have got lots of experience migrating web sites and are able to handle anything – from a typical WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ site, to a highly elaborate, custom–made application.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise ETA, since there are lots of variables, including the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll try our best to transfer your website within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin transferring my website?
A: We will require the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. When we have completed the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is change the NS records for your domain. Your web site will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: While we migrate your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: Yup. We support all standard Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based web hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary website creation and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
