Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my web site be secure?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your web site, or if you face regular downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk team to respond to you, it might be a clever idea to change your provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites as well as your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At HaveFuture, we understand that this can be difficult & time–consuming. That’s why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly experienced technical staff reps will transfer your site content from your current provider to us. Our techs have got extensive experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from a typical WordPress–based blog or Joomla™–powered web site, to an extremely complex, custom–made web app.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long does it take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we do not have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various things that you have to consider – the actual size of your website and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller web sites, our team usually manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What info do you require?
A: We don’t need any information that is personal. We’ll need, however, the login information for your present web hosting account and the name of the site that you want to transfer.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
A: No. Your site will remain available online during the transfer. As soon as everything is completed on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything is fine, all you will need to do is edit your domain name’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: Nah. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not require anything. We will never touch base with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. In essence, if we can get access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site creation platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
