Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does website migration entail?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer fulfill the demands of your website, or when you experience constant network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the support staff to get back to you, it may be smart to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites along with your databases from your present provider to your new provider. At beReveal, we realize that this can be hard and time–consuming. That is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our highly proficient technical staff representatives will migrate your site content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have plenty of experience migrating websites and can take care of anything – from a traditional WordPress–powered weblog or Joomla™–based website, to a highly complex, custom–made web application.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How long can it take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are various factors that you have to take into account – the actual size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff typically manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: What info will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will need the login information for your current web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
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 hosting provider. Once the transfer 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 migration is finished. After that, we’ll instruct you how to move the domain over to your hosting account with us and how to change the DNS records.
Q: Will my old hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your web content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will never 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. In essence, if we can receive access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site building platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
